Being Black Is Not a Risk Factor: A Strengths-Based Look at the State of the Black Child is a report combining rich data, expert essays and “points of proof.” It is designed to address the needs of policymakers, advocates, principals, teachers, parents and others by challenging 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.
