Angry Little Men: Hypermasculinity, Academic Disconnect, and Mentoring African American Males
Why are young African American males so quick to anger?
Why are young African American males so disengaged in school?
Why is male bravado or hypermasculine behavior in the African
American community a negative contributor to school success?

ability, why does their academic performance continue to be
below standard? How do we switch from the dysfunctional behavior of the
street to the engaging behavior in the classroom?
