This work not only investigates the value of school-based mentoring (SBM) in the lives of adolescent males of color, but also offers alternative, more positive ways in which our society can experience and embrace this social group. Understanding mentoring as a cultural practice, this book informs schools and communities of the roles and responsibilities that they have in fighting against the public assault on America's youth and helping young males of color see themselves as redeemable and as fully human.
