Book description…

Every Child Needs A Mentor, Especially Our African American Males! Mentoring young males, starting as early as kindergarten, is essential for success in school and in our ever-changing global society. Young males need support from positive, enthusiastic, and caring role models, particularly men. As schools continue to move forward with federal and state mandates, African American youth need guidance and direction that will forge them forward. Dr. William C. Dixon, Jr., shares snapshots of scenarios he has faced over the years as a school administrator. Dr. La’Toya Thomas-Dixon contributes to the book as an advocate for the African American male, understanding and connecting to the whole child by providing glimpses of research and advocacy. This book is for anyone seeking encouragement and advice on how to mentor an African American male student or athlete who seems distant or is falling behind in school.
