A panel discussion was held on the disproportionate number of failing schools that are predominantly comprised of impoverished students of racial and ethnic minorities. Also discussed was that black male college students perform significantly less well than all other students, including black female students, with retention and graduation rates also much lower. The panelists responded to questions from members of the audience. Carlton Brown moderated.

“Who Is Failing Whom? Black Males and the American Educational System” was a panel of the 14th annual Harlem Book Fair from the Langston Hughes Auditorium in the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. close
