Is the Threat to Black Men’s Health a Crisis for Black Fatherhood in America?
Join the conversation about health disparities and fatherhood as experienced in the African American community; explore the opportunities for positive change.
"Deaths in Ferguson, Missouri; New York City; Sanford, Florida; and other areas have focused international attention on young African American men. In a recent campaign, young African American men draw attention to key overlooked facts that describe their demographic:
- 1 of 3 goes to college
- 3 of 4 are drug free
- 5 of 9 have jobs
- 7 of 8 are not teenaged fathers
- 11 of 12 finish high school.1
