While the statistics suggest a daunting task, there are factors that support the nurturance and development of African American boys. We will discuss the impact of history and societal perceptions of black boys. It does take a village to raise a child, and we will discuss the key constituencies that most impact a black boy’s life: family, community, and school. Finally, this webinar will provide concrete suggestions and ways to get involved. We will conclude by showing how even small measures by individuals can reap large dividends in a boy’s life and development.
