Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

African-American females are at-promise students who have overcome historical and predicted odds as it pertains to the future of their ethnic identity and status as women. Researchers and national reports have repeatedly illustrated African-American women have a higher risk to incur challenges related to their academic achievement, school retention, college transitions, career exposure, and social emotional development (school climate). Many of these challenges were associated with risk of early sexual involvement that can influence their physical (exposure to sexually transmitted diseases) and physiological health (brain and hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and relational interactions). However, there are several success stories of individuals who went through challenging experiences as a teen mother that were able to persist forward toward their goals (college, career, SES) with the appropriate supports (teachers, counselors, mentors, access to regular education school systems, positive school culture, psychoeducation, community resources). Their stories have been rarely emphasized or utilized to create holistic interventions that allow 21st century preventative and supportive measures to promote students resilience and persist towards successful developmental transitions. Therefore, The purpose of this manuscript is to discuss the following: (a) literature pertaining to African-American teen mothers and academia, (b) share stories pertaining to the historical and cultural influences that have influenced successful generational shifts with the parent and/or their progeny, and (c) propose a research study that promotes culturally creative interventions and collaborations that can have a significant impact on reducing cultural gaps and can also support the growth of underrepresented groups (academic achievement, college, career, STEM), thus benefits society.
