Patton, J. M. (1995). The education of African American males: frameworks for developing authenticity. Journal of African American Men, 1(2), 5-27.
This article begins with a contextual overview of the education of young African American males. Philosophical and theoretical guideposts are later offered to suggest direction for the authentic education of these learners. Effective intervention strategies are proposed along with the outline of a holistic service delivery model.

The increased linkages of community-based programs that utilize Africentric principles and practices are discussed.
