The highly visible image of the Black male in America is a frequent topic of scrutiny, conjecture, and opinion. But what does research into the reality of the Black male experience have to say? Helping scholars, journalists, and educators discover answers to that question is the goal of the Black Male Education Research Collection. This site pulls together peer-reviewed research from scholarly publications and features interviews with research authors so that those looking for these answers can find them in one place. The information found within this site often provides a counternarrative to the prevailing beliefs about American Black males.
The Black Male Education Research Collection has collated research from the nation’s top scholars on issues related to Black males and The achievement gap, sport, gender identity, social justice, the school-to-prison pipeline and the criminal justice system. It is hoped that engagement with evidence-based inquiry and facts about Black males will inform the myriad discussions regarding these men and steer conversation toward truth about their experience and their needs.
