Black males face many challenges across the context of school, home, and street life. With these challenges come pain, depression, adversity, and resilience. Black males want to find success in their academic careers; however, the adverse situations they encounter twenty-four hours, seven days a week can move their focus from establishing academic success to enduring social and emotional empathy that leads to a fight or flight mode. The Power of Resilience: Factors that Influence Black Males to Reenroll and Complete Their High School Diploma or GED shares powerful stories of Black Males who dropped out, faced adversity, re-enrolled, and completed their high school diploma or GED. Jerome Watts offers insight into the life Black males face as they build their strength in their sites of resilience development, including school, home, and the street. Students, educators, parents, political officials, judges, police officers, attorneys, community members, and others have the opportunity to learn about Black males and how to build positive relationships with them by supporting and guiding them to their diploma.
