Frank Talk About Increasing Black Male Achievement
Developing systemic and sustainable increases in Black male achievement continues to be elusive. There are no proven programs, researched-based or otherwise, to draw upon. The strategies required oftentimes prove too complex and unpalatable for many school leaders or classroom teachers. This session engages participants in the questions that must be asked, data that must be gathered, partnerships that must be established, and strategies that must be implemented to ensure systemic and sustainable increases in Black male achievement as outlined in the book, "Empowering African-American Males: A Guide to Increasing Black Male Achievement."

Participants learn how to shape peer culture, build partnerships, involve parents, reach out to the community, build on young men's dreams and aspirations, and develop an asset-based focus that forges relationships and taps into the intrinsic motivation to succeed.
