African American Male Immersion Schools: Segregation? Separation? Or Innovation?
National Urban League, Inc., New York, NY.
This document is the transcript of a videotape recording of a roundtable discussion that was produced with four panelists and a moderator and was intended to provide educators and professionals who work with African-American males an opportunity to explore the background of educational initiatives for black males. These gender- and race-specific academic programs represent efforts to meet the academic and cultural needs of African-American males. The immersion-school concept is one type of community response to the problems faced by African-American youth, particularly in the cities. The video explores the controversy surrounding these schools, and the recent judicial decisions that have ruled against them or that have caused them to be modified. Panelists examine a model that may strongly affect the positive development of school-age African-American males. Panelists were: (1) Richard J. Brown (moderator); (2) Jacqueline Berrien; (3) Roger L. Green; (4) Walteen Grady Truely; and (5) Michael Webb. (SLD)
