The Black Male and the United States Economy


This paper examines the current status of black males in the United States economy and emphasizes several positive aspects of the changing status of black males over time. While it is  acknowledged that the social and economic conditions of black males in the United States are troubling in many respects, the objective is to highlight the progress and achievements of black males. Most research on black males focuses solely on the problems and rarely highlights the successes and accomplishments. However, little attention has been paid to the achievements in education, the professional successes, and the positive community and family involvement of black males in the United States.
