Countering the Narrative: A Layered Perspective on Supporting Black Males in Education
Goings, Ramon B.; Smith, Aaron; Harris, Daniel; Wilson, Tanneshala; Lancaster, Demetrius
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v12 n1 p54-63 Fall 2015
The challenges facing Black males throughout the educational pipeline have been discussed by researchers in detail. However, missing from this research are discussions from the perspective of researchers, educators, and community members united on how to better support Black males. The purpose of this reflective piece is twofold. First, we address and contextualize the issues that Black boys and men face and have to overcome in academic and community settings from our various perspectives serving as a teacher candidate, inservice teacher, and higher education professionals. Second we provide recommendations for education stakeholders to help support Black males from our various perspectives.
