"It's my duty now to be that living proof that you can go through those struggles....and become something special," stated Principal Archie Moss to the Commercial Appeal. A TFA Alumnus, Principal Moss is the Memphis Impact Leader of the Profound Gentlemen and the Principal at Bruce elementary. He is passionate about changing the conversation regarding young Black men.  

Profound Gentlemen creates a network of Black male educators in order to support the increase in the graduation rates among young men of color. The Profound Gentlemen hopes to end the "school to prison pipeline" issue that effects many urban communities, such as Memphis. In their efforts, the organization will create a "cradle to career pipeline." Interested in joining the mission? Join here: http://profoundgentlemen.org/join/
