Crime, drugs, unemployment. These are the problems. Nurturing Young Black Males offers proven solutions.
Most young black American men grow up to lead productive lives. Among high-school drop-outs, though, only half have jobs and over 40 percent are in prison, on parole, or on probation.
But there are programs, mostly private, that are proving it is possible to help these teenagers. This book tells how these programs work, describes the difficulties they encounter, and shows how a national program network can be developed.
Includes chapters on adolescent development, shifting the focus of youth programs from deterrence to development, and Afrocentrism and the African-American male.

Review:

...useful in that it alerts us to the limitations of policies and programs that target young Black males, and the urgent need to develop approaches that place the economic, cultural, and social situation of Blacks at the centre of any analyses and program delivery. (Carl E. James, CANADIAN JOURNAL OF URBAN RESEARCH)

...a national call to arms that is long overdue. Here are the tools we need to help vulnerable black male youth survive their environments of risk, and reach their full potential as contributing adults. Mincy's book must be read and we must act. (Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children's Defense Fund)

Readers concerned about the plight of young African-American males should read this timely book. Mincy and his colleagues persuasively discuss interventions that can rescue troubled male black adolescents now. (William Julius Wilson, Lucy Flower University Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, University of Chicago)

First-rate scholarship charting the impediments facing the African American male's socialization.... (William Julius Wilson, Lucy Flower University Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, University of Chicago The African American Male)

...an inspiring document for anyone concerned about the plight of young African-American males....both timely and useful in that it merges research, proven models, and recommendations for improving the status of that population. (William Julius Wilson, Lucy Flower University Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, University of Chicago National Journal)

...refreshing... (William Julius Wilson, Lucy Flower University Professor of Sociology and Public Policy, University of Chicago Federal Probation)
