Robinson, S. A. (2016). Introduction to the Special Issue. Journal of African American Males in Education, 7(1), 1-4.
This special issue of the Journal of African American Males in Education (JAAME) sheds light on the experiences of African American males in P-20 settings who have learning disabilities. To date there has been limited scholarship that addresses African American males who have learning disabilities. As a result, this has left many unanswered questions related to support, theory, and experiential knowledge (Proctor, Graves, & Esch, 2012; Robinson, 2015a). For instance, Lindo (2006) examined a decade of articles published in Reading Research Quarterly (1994–2004), the Journal of Educational Psychology (1994–2004), and the Journal of Scientific Study of Reading (1997–2007) and found that no research articles reported conclusions by race.
