Why Scouting Works for Black Boys

This resource presents scouting as a solution to challenges faced by African American boys. It suggests that scouting can provide necessary foundations for boys raised in single-parent homes or without strong male role models, as well as those tempted by urban street life. The book highlights scouting’s benefits, such as teaching in a single-gender structure that aligns with many schools’ disciplinary preferences. With its focus on scouting’s history and advantages, the book serves as both a recruitment tool for scouting programs and a valuable guide for single mothers, youth workers, and church officials.
