This workshop discusses the black experience and historical perceptions of African Americans in school systems with class distinctions. The workshop shares an overview of information from Boys in Crisis and includes issues of gender stereotyping and reflections on the school-to-prison pipeline. The workshop discusses the impact of shame and belonging as they relate to trauma and bonding and attachment, and it explores the implications for relationships and motivation. Another focus is guarding the HEARTS (health, education, assimilation, relationships, transformation, and significance) of African-American boys. The strategies and initiatives shared here will help your students with goal-setting and communication.
