Being Black Is Not a Risk Factor

13-NBCDI-Booklet-Cover.jpg

The National Black Child Development Institute (NBCDI) is excited to share our newest publication! From the foreword by Barbara Bowman of the Erikson Institute to a closing essay by David Johns, Executive Director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African-Americans, Being Black Is Not a Risk Factor: A Strengths-Based Look at the State of the Black Child is designed to challenge the prevailing discourse about Black children–one which overemphasizes limitations and deficits and does not draw upon the considerable strengths, assets and resilience demonstrated by our children, families and communities. Click here to learn more about this fascinating publication, and our most recent tstate-focused reports from Florida, Illinois, and Pennsylvania.
