BE Modern Man: Gerald Moore Sr.
Cybersecurity engineer, entrepreneur, author; 47; Founder, Gerald Moore Online Technology School for Black Boys
My latest startup is the Gerald Moore Online Technology School for Black Boys. I have a goal of educating 10,000 young black men and boys ages 8-16 per year online. The school’s primary focus will be preparing black boys for STEM professions, by teaching computer science, coding, mobile app development, and website development. I also have a background in basic electricity which I will also be including. Registration includes the Black Boys Read Book Club. I’ve also just published my book, Motivate Black Boys, How to Prepare Your Sons for Careers in STEM.
I’m a cybersecurity engineer and in this line of work, or any of the engineering sciences, black men are not very well represented. In my 20 year career, I’m typically the only black man in the room. I have not seen much growth in black male representation over that time, but I have seen the tremendous growth of black women in engineering and information technology. This is why my personal focus is on preparing black boys and young men for success in STEM.
