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.Our most visionary leaders working on these issues today know that we are not going to have resolution over the next 2 years or 10 years. ... In this book, people like Joe Brooks, Doug Lomax, Tony Iton, and others talk about leadership in ways that only experienced leaders can. ... a€œPoverty + poor reading = dropout: 3rd grade reading is good predictor.a€ Silicon ... 5.
