First, do as much research about the problem as you can in order to understand the correct angle to take. Why? because this scenario can be approached from many different angles. (Ex. Movement for social change, Mentoring program, Community Development etc. )

Second, as you are doing your research you need to seek out the root issues of the problem in order to gain support from those who are already working on this same issue.

Third, Create a plan of action and begin understanding what type of changes should be made within the communities, the school districts, etc.

Fourth, Network, Organize your contacts, and gain political support from those who are in power to influence the types of change your are advocating for.

Fifth, Read, Read, & Read some more ( You must become a student of your own change) Your enlightenment into the matter may hold some clues into an easier and more acceptable conclusion.

Sixth, Don't give up ( Perseverance is the name of the game and you must see this to the end)

Seventh, Leverage the talents, skills, and abilities of others (Don't go at this alone). Draw support from those who have the same interest and passions as you do for this issue. Don't waste your time with those who pretend to want to help for the sake of being apart of your movement without the heart and passion as you do.

Lastly, This is just a snippet of all the information you will need to make this a reality. Go, to the library and got many books on "social movements" and the plight of African-American males.

Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu
Dr. Naim Akbar
Organizing for social change (Kim Bobo)
Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan
Attorney General Eric Holder
