As a follow up to our January 2014 #ttgpchat about "Black Women + the Ph.D." (our most popular discussion to date!),  we're looking to explore some of the challenges Black men continue to face in higher education and in general.  

We'll explore:
  • More Black men go to prison than college--is this story line true? How to move beyond it?
  • More Black women than black men in college--is this narrative helpful or hurtful?
  • Do Black men feel isolated in higher education, especially at PWIs?
  • Dissecting the Black male athlete narrative
  • Plus more! 
Follow the conversation on Twitter. Send in questions and comments using the hashtag #ttgpchat.  

See you there!
