What learning conditions, organizational structures, and school climate factors are necessary to nurture the positive development of African American male students?

In his book Walking the Equity Talk, A Guide for Culturally Courageous Leadership in School Communities, Dr. Browne has defined the components of school environments that nurture positive youth development, and the seven major actions that culturally courageous leaders must take to create and maintain such environments. Dr. Browne draws from his book to describe those learning conditions, organizational structures, and factors within the social and cultural climate in schools that nurture the positive development of African American male students. His presentation addresses the following:

Specific learning conditions, organizational structures and climate factors in many schools that mitigate against improved academic outcomes for African American male students
Policies, conditions, and strategies that can help produce a nurturing school climate
Political constraints that may be experienced along the way and
The leadership needed to overcome such constraints
