The Status of Black Males: Ensuring Our Boys Mature Into Strong Men
Co-Chair Congresswoman Norton Meets with Press at July Hearing
The Status of Black Males Hearing
Emotions ran high at the inaugural meeting of the Congressional Caucus on Black Men and Boys on Wednesday, as participants discussed ways to protect and invest in black males amid a renewed focus on race and racial profiling in the United States following the trial of George Zimmerman.
Wilson and members of the Congressional Black Caucus will, on May 29, 2014, host a panel discussion on Capitol Hill, “Educational Success for Black Men and Boys in a Post Brown v. Board of Education Era.” During this public event, a report by the National Education Association highlighting programs that have helped African-American male students do well in school will be reviewed.
