|Description:||How black boys and men are situated in social systems, opportunity structures, developmental contexts, and the consciousness of America were the foci of an initiative launched in the early 1990s by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s National Task Force on A frican American Men and Boys. The Task Force focused its attention on “African-American men and boys who, at the time, were not a part of either the recognized economic structure… the body politic of the country… nor communit[ies] with[in] their own ethnic groups …” The Task Force’s inﬂ uential report, Repairing the Breach: Key Ways to Support Family Life , Reclaim Our Streets and Rebuild Civil Society in America’s Communities (Young & Austin, 1996) , recounted the realities of what, by this point in historical time, most Americans should have known: that the h ealth and development of b lack boys and men are anchored in an array of environmental, social, and psychological forces.|
