According to many statistics and personal accounts, the numbers of black men on college campuses are decreasing. Equally alarming is the amount of unemployment among black males in cities like New York & Baltimore. Some contribute the decrease of black men in college to a dwindling focus on education in high school. Instead black males are steered towards athletics & entertainment. What can be done to reverse this trend? Is the rising unemployment among black males reflective of the decreasing number of college graduates? Is a college education necessary for a black man to get a good job in American society? Is this indeed a negative trend, or is it no cause for alarm?
