To counter the discouraging statistics and achievement gap of black boys’, “Listen to Our Voices” gives eight black middle school males the chance to express their thoughts loud and clear. "I wish we had adults who would listen," said a 10 year-old African American boy.

Abstract:
Statistics confirm the inequality in this country’s education system. Although some succeed, many more young African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities, especially males, do not achieve academically and thus wind up with unproductive lives.

“Listen to Our Voices” gives eight black, students, ages 10 to 12 and representative of all achievement and behavior levels, the chance to be heard on varied topics from heroes to racism, from personal mottos to violence and drugs.

Their experiences are vast, and some of their opinions are well beyond their years. Hopefully, this writing project will help them believe in themselves and their potential.
