Empowering Young Black Males--III: A Systematic Modular Training Program for Black Male Children & Adolescents.
Lee, Courtland C.
This series of five interrelated modules is an update and revision of "Saving the Native Son: Empowerment Strategies for Young Black Males (1996)." It offers specific strategies for empowering young African American males to help them achieve optimal educational and social success. Empowerment is a developmental process by which people who are powerless or marginalized become aware of the power dynamics at work in their lives, develop the skills and capacity for gaining a degree of control over their lives without infringing upon the rights of others, and support the empowerment of others in their community. Each updated module provides new approaches and directions for empowering young Black males, updated references, and new media resources and Internet sites to enhance implementation. Together, these modules provide educators, community leaders, and parents with comprehensive strategies and techniques for addressing the issues and challenges confronting Black male youth in contemporary society. Modules are: (1) The Young Lions: An Educational Empowerment Program for Black Males in Grades 3 to 6; (2) Black Manhood Training: A Developmental Counseling Program for Adolescent Black Males; (3) Tapping the Power of Respected Elders: Locating Adult Male Role Models for Black Male Youth; (4) Educational Advocacy: Empowering Black Male Students; and (5) Strengthening Our Native Sons (SONS): Empowerment Strategies for African American Parents. (Contains 23 references.) (GCP)
