We have to do something about the stereotypes associated with Black and Latino boys. One action we can all take is to seek to eliminate “deficit thinking” when we are discussing the issues affecting these young men. This event will discuss practical steps we can take to bring attention to the positive contributions and associated accomplishments of Black and Latino adolescent males.

This webinar will discuss both the successful nurturing and strategies for publicizing the positive results.
