Revelations and definitions to bridge the culture chasm

Presenting information for use inside and outside the classroom, this educational resource sheds light on the impact of black male self-image on schooling. Many questions are explored, including What is the effect on black males raised without fathers? What impact do gangs, rappers, media, and athletes have on black males? Do these factors distort the black male image of masculinity? Do boys feel that academic progress is feminine? This book gives educators, counselors, social workers, and parents answers they need to face this important issue.
