I am the product of a schizophrenic mother and a sometimes-absent father. I am also no stranger to violence. When I was younger, I envisioned growing up with my family intact and with parents who were active in my life. Reality gave me a much different picture when my family was torn apart due to violence. Growing up in a home where love just seemed lost took a toll on me. Violence was like an additional member of my family - always around, always heard, always seen but never stopped.

The report details the exciting and long overdue work in the area of black male achievement and provides recommendations for strengthening that work.
