Boys From Harlem Go College Shopping
The Chronicle of Higher Education (password access) publishes a good feature on boys from a Harlem mentoring program visiting colleges in the Washington area.
Saving minority boys from tough neighborhoods should be an effort measured on the scale of a entire school district. Unfortunately, that's rare. I saw it happening on that scale in Long Beach, California, but after that the list gets short. I saw it happening on a school-by-school level, at charter schools, both co-ed and all-boys.
