Abstract:

Researchers and policy experts alike have increasingly focused on the national crisis of Black men. The body of literature that currently exists focuses primarily on the underachievement of African American youth and males compared to other groups of students. The literature review is inconsistent in its findings and does not specify what contextual variables are most important for Black youth and more specifically Black males.
To address this, the proposed research, which is a part of a larger CUNY initiative, will explore what variables are needed for Black men to achieve academic success by using qualitative data collections methods with 151 participants in New York City High Schools. Survey and focus group sampling of students in high achieving schools compared to lower achieving schools will be used to examine why there are fewer Black men graduating from high schools in New York City as well as high schools around the country compared to other groups of students. This research will uncover some of the reasons as to why this is happening, providing insights, which could inform the development of programs, designed to address the needs of Black male students at John Jay and other City University of New York colleges.
