Black Male Achievement: Family and Culture

May 22, 2013

“It’s about looking at the reality of that child’s daily life and how to wrap around services to address that reality.”  

This panel discussion looks at the role of family and culture in black male achievement. Family and culture is a main piece that defines an individual and is constantly under attack. The discussion describes a strategy to develop services to help the family as a unit, rather than focusing on one individual. This strategy hopes to shift the priorities of family and culture to help scale the advancement of black males.
