The Black Boys and Men: Changing the Narrative podcast series at NYU McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research will launch on January 15, 2018 (MLK Day). The podcast provides a platform for the nation's top scholars and practitioners who are engaged in innovative work on Black Boys and Men to discuss how their work is changing the narrative in the discourse on Black Boys and Men. The series calls into question issues of systemic and institutional racism and oppression. It provides concrete steps to prevent and address many of the issues that disproportionately affect Black boys and men, including health disparities, incarceration, trauma, and violence. Dr. Joseph Richardson will present his podcast on Violence and Trauma among Black Boys and Men which airs on January 22, 2018.
