This exploratory phenomenological study was conducted to ascertain which factors caused African American male pre-service teachers to persist at a HBCU [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] in the Mid-South. The work is grounded in the conceptual framework called resiliency. Resiliency asks the question, "How do children, adolescents, and young people "make it" when they are exposed to or face major stress and adversity?" The results of this study point to what are commonly called "protective factors" that exist in the lives of these young men. They are: (1) families/communities, (2) the individual, and (3) the school.
