Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beyond Stereotypes in Black and White: How Everyday Leaders Can Build Healthier Opportunities for African American Boys and Men exposes the daily plight of African American boys and men, identifying the social and policy infrastructure that ensnares them in a downward spiral that worsens with each exposure to our system that offers unemployment, low-wage work, marginalization, and incarceration.

The book examines why African American boys and men are more sickly and die younger than any other racial group in the United States, have very few health coverage options, and are consistently incarcerated at rates that are wildly disproportionate to their representation of the U.S. population; and it documents how this tremendous injustice comes with a cost that burdens all groups in American society, not just African Americans. Additionally, the author challenges readers to see that all of us must act individually and collectively to right this social wrong.

Synopsis:

This book spotlights the plight of African American boys and men, examining multiple systems beyond education, incarceration, and employment to assess their impact on the mental and physical health of African American boys and men—and challenges everyday citizens to help start a social transformation.

Synopsis:

• Documents the fragile mental and behavioral health status of African American boys and men in accessible, easy-to-understand language for general readers

• Describes the role of the media in perpetuating negative stereotypical images of African American boys and men

• Provides boxed data and information that allows readers to do a "reality check" on their perceptions, actions, and inactions; and verify and validate the plight of this group

• Supplies quotes and insights from regular, everyday leaders throughout the text
