Transitions in the Life Course of African-American Males: Issues in Schooling, Adulthood, Fatherhood, and Families.
Gadsden, Vivian L., Ed.; Trent, William, Ed.
These papers, presented at a symposium on African American fathers, examine issues related to the seven "Core Learnings" of the National Center on Fathers and Families, particularly those related to fathers' caring, joblessness, and role transitions. The papers connect issues across school, work, and personal development that contribute to African American male experiences and the transition into fatherhood. After an introduction, "Transitions in the Life-Course of African-American Males: Issues in Schooling, Adulthood, Fatherhood, and Families" (William Trent), five papers include: "Determinants of School Success among African American Males" (James Earl Davis and Will J. Jordan); "Education and Responsible Fatherhood among African Americans: Socialization, Mobilization and Allocation Challenges" (Phillip J. Bowman); "African American Males and Fatherhood: Issues in Research and Practice" (Vivian L. Gadsden and Ralph Smith); "Revisionist and Post-Revisionist Paradigms in Life Transitions of Black Males: A Commentary from Research" (Deborah J. Johnson); and "African American Manhood and Fatherhood: A Commentary from Practice" (Edward W. Pitt). (Contains 131 references.) (SM)
