A new report busts myths about African-American men and education.

(Continued from Page 1)

Toldson will provide more detail on the report's findings in Show Me the Numbers, The Root's monthly series published in association with Howard University's Journal of Negro Education.

Developed with funding from the Open Society Foundation's Campaign for Black Male Achievement, "Challenge the Status Quo" is available for digital download on the CBCF website. Hard copies of the report were distributed at the DNC this week and will be available at the CBCF's Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C., Sept. 19-22.
