Mission Statement

The mission of the Todd Anthony Bell National Resource Center on the African American Male is to examine and address critical issues in society that impact the quality of life for African American males throughout the lifespan.

  • In some cities, 80% of our boys drop out before finishing high school.
  • Every day 1,000 Black children are arrested.
  • 1 in every 8 African American males ages 25-29 is incarcerated.
  • The number one cause of death for our boys is homicide.

Black boys in Milwaukee need our help 
Gary L. Williams saves young Black males in Milwaukee
By James E. Causey
Tuesday, May 1, 2012
A million kids drop out of school every year. A majority of these kids are minorities and boys, and many never go back to school. Wisconsin has a 50% high school dropout rate for black boys and has one of the nation's highest black male incarceration rates.
Williams, 62, said his next mission is to call on the black mega churches to get involved. These churches offer a large pool of black families with the skill sets to address the problems of black youths. They have men who can serve as mentors to these kids, and they also can provide the connections many of the youths need to get their lives on track.

Friday's Daily Brief: Becoming Fearless About Money, Unemployment Rate Falls, Senior Hunger Crisis

Friday, May 4, 2012
Arianna Huffington: I'm delighted to announce Becoming Fearless, a video series sponsored by Toyota that will explore the theme of fearlessness on a range of subjects, from parenting and work to relationships and love. Again and again in my life, I have witnessed moments of extraordinary strength, courage, and resilience, when fears are confronted, even overcome, and anything seems possible. And I've learned that fearlessness is like a muscle -- the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes. It's about getting up one more time than we fall down. So, for our first video, I gathered some friends and experts to talk about one of the most fear-inducing forces known to humankind: money.

David Bromwich: The Peace Prize War President
In his campaign to win the election as a war president, Barack Obama flatters the worst vices of chauvinism and panders to the most vulgar and brutal idea of the qualities that define a leader and the actions that ennoble a country. No alchemy of eloquence can atone for the confession of moral surrender involved in such a boast.
Howard Fineman: At the Kentucky Derby, Chasing Traces of a Champion
And there, in all of his glory, stood Secretariat: massive in size; reddish-brown chestnut in color; enormous, muscled chest; proud head jutting forward like a one-horse Mt. Rushmore.
Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm: Occupy a Wing of the Democratic Party
Often, change does come more quickly from the inside rather than the outside. Become an alternative to the Tea Party. And then, once that happens, occupy the majority in Congress.
Robert Reich: Why the Economy Is Heading for a Stall
Europe is sliding into recession, and gas prices are still high. But the real problem lies closer to home. Cuts in government spending are reducing domestic demand precisely at the time when consumers are reaching the end of their ropes and can't spend more.
Jim Wallis: The Idolatry of Politics and the Promise of the Common Good
How we live and what we do for the common good is much more important than how we vote. Political affiliation with candidates, parties, and structures is waning -- especially among young people -- and that's good news.
