Successfully Navigating through College: Voices of African American Males
Anumba, Ethel
International Journal of Teacher Leadership, v6 n1 p35-56 Fall 2015
The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that facilitated college persistence and retention among African American males who were enrolled in an undergraduate program at two four-year public universities in Southern California. This research addressed the growing problem of college attrition among Black males by conducting an in-depth investigation of the factors that facilitated college persistence among a selected group of African American males. The following research questions guided the study: (1) What are the experiences of African American males that lead to their college retention and persistence?; (2) What are the institutional practices or policies at the K-12 educational system, experienced by African American males, that facilitated their college retention and persistence?; and (3) What are the institutional practices or policies at the university level, experienced by African American males, that facilitated their college retention and persistence?
