We’ve heard all the statistics on Black male youth from the low graduation rates (52% nationally; less in some urban areas) to the incarceration rates. There is no doubt that at this moment many schools are failing black boys and that America has lost a generation of black boys. Join me as I talk with Phillip Jackson, Executive Director, Black Star Project about the crisis affecting our black boys, how Black Star is tackling this issue and what parents and the community can do to ensure our youth’s success.
