Publisher's Summary

Empower black boys to dream, believe, achieve.

Schools that routinely fail Black boys are not extraordinary. In fact, they are all-too ordinary. If we are to succeed in positively shifting outcomes for Black boys and young men, we must first change the way school is "done". That’s where the eight in 10 teachers who are White women fit in...and this urgently needed resource is written specifically for them as a way to help them understand, respect, and connect with all of their students.

So much more than a call to call to action - but that, too! - The Guide for White Women Who Teach Black Boys brings together research, activities, personal stories, and video interviews to help us all embrace the deep realities and thrilling potential of this crucial American task. With Eddie, Ali, and Marguerite as your mentors, you will learn how to:

  • Develop learning environments that help Black boys feel a sense of belonging, nurturance, challenge, and love at school 
  • Change school culture so that Black boys can show up in the wholeness of their selves 
  • Overcome your unconscious bias and forge authentic connections with your Black male students 

If you are a teacher who is afraid to talk about race, that’s okay. Fear is a normal human emotion and racial competence is a skill that can be learned. We promise that listening to this extraordinary guide will be a life-changing first step forward...for both you and the students you serve.

a must read for any educator

We did this in a book study with white women and black women and men educators. Let me say that all educators should read this. it is very informative, direct and precise in experience. I enjoyed the book study but you will definitely want the book to make notes. Get both!
