No miracles, but some hope.

By Editorial staff

Black Boys Apart (Freeden Blume Oeur)A compelling endorsement for all-male public schooling for Black boys and young men. The book brilliantly illustrates the surprising success of this holistic method of education, which mixes democratic empowerment, strict discipline — and intentional racial segregation and sex separation — with a warm, loving environment of Black brotherhood. His articulate analysis calls on us to rethink Black masculinity and imagines a humane alternative to how many Black boys are currently educated in America’s overly-policed school-to-incarceration pipeline.
