Jerry Sue Thornton Center

Join Oscar A. Barbarin, Ph.D. Chair, African American Studies Department University of Maryland to talk about what families, schools and communities can do to halt black biys’ progression from Pre-K to prison.

“The situation for African American boys has all the elements of a classic tragedy…” How do the prevailing norms of family life contribute to the problems of African-American boys? What policies and practices can schools implement to facilitate social adjustment and academic achievement at school? How might communities be part of the solution?
