Young, Black, and Male in America: An Endangered Species

Synopsis

This comprehensive volume provides in-depth analyses of the deteriorating status of black youth, particularly black males. Experts from a variety of professions examine the implications and interrelations of the multiple problems facing black youth and propose a comprehensive set of policies and programs that address those problems. They consider such important economic, sociocultural, and political issues as unemployment, teenage pregnancy, crime and delinquency, substance abuse, and the conservative backlash against civil rights and social welfare programs.
