The Howard Rye Institute
HRI is a nine-month intensive training initiative building tomorrow’s leaders of African descent.
HRI fellows learn
- the importance of history and how it relates to issues communities face today;
- develop an understanding of how institutions work and the politics behind them;
- develop the political and economic thinking that goes into issues and system impacting our community.
In developing the next generation of civic and political leaders, HRI uses experts and prominent leaders from universities, unions, government, business and nonprofits as trainers, speakers, and mentors.
