Special Lessons for Those Working with African American Boys

Thrilled to kick off Black History Month activities with a Twitter Chat for one of my favorite publications where I'm a contributor, The Good Men Project. I've been inspired by my mentor and senior editor there, Marie Roker-Jones (also of www.RaisingGreatMen.com) who offered our first Wednesday night #GoodMenChat of Black History Month to a topic my producing partner, J. Tiggett, film consultant Dr. Raymond Winbush and I hold close to our hearts:  The mis-education of our Black Boys.  I was fortunate enough to meet Roosevelt Mitchell III, M.ED over the holidays back home in St. Louis, MO and he's doing incredible work in special education. And he's a really cool children's book author! I thought why not have a real discussion on what has become an industry with special education and African American boys? Let's start hearing about some hard core numbers and how a number of children are set up for failure and those really needing assistance are blocked from reaching their full potential.  Is this your child? I believe they're all our children. Let's chat. #GoodMenChat on Twitter, Wednesday, February 4, 9pmEST.
