Dr. Chezare Warren: Young Black Men in Education

Big Blue Marble, where we deeply appreciate teachers, is proud to welcome Dr. Chezare Warren. He is a nationally recognized researcher in the field of urban education and teacher education. His scholarship is centered on improving the education outcomes of young Black men and boys across the P-20 education pipeline.

He'll be talking about his research and reading from his newest book, Urban Preparation: Young Black Men Moving from Chicago's South Side to Success in Higher Education Harvard Education Press (2017). This text depicts the ecology of people, moments, lessons, incidents, and interactions that collectively help determine the journey to and through college for seventeen young Black men from Chicago’s South Side. Counterstorytelling in Urban Preparation acknowledges the cultural strengths young Black men and boys bring to school with them, and the important role of Black communities in their educational attainment.
