Summary For many young black American males, the future seems bleak at worst, uncertain at best. The challenges seem frightfully beyond the reach of society's current institutions. Realizing the state of emergency firsthand, educator Sadiq Ali successfully established an African-American all-male school in Hartford, Connecticut for seventh and eighth graders. In Benjamin E. Mays Institute: Educating Young Black Males, Ali describes the creation and life of the school, its successes and struggles. Perhaps most importantly, Ali uses his knowledge and experience to address ways that others around the nation can use education to improve the future for today's young black men.
