Why the emphasize on Black boys? Because there isn’t enough being done to promote the well-being of Black boys. Black boys are often forgotten when it comes to academic programs. Of the programs aimed to promote higher education, 33% of the participants are Male and only 11% of those are Black males. Furthermore, Black boys are more likely to be suspended, expelled, and arrested than their white peers. Nationally, 1 in 3 Black boys will be incarcerated in their lifetimes. If you want to be the change join the movement and come learn to be your own boss in tech!
