This volume is the continuation of a two-part series that focuses on salient topics and issues affecting Black males as they engage in adult education and learning. Considering the historical and current effects on the way these men participate in adult education, this volume broadens the conversations around adult Black males’ educational experiences by utilizing academic research as well as program descriptions and personal narratives with a concern for the “lived experiences.” More specifically, the authors explore:
  • the agency of Black men in carving out pathways to success,
  • the programs that support these endeavors, and
  • the role of civil society in facilitating or inhibiting their progress.
Topics covered include the digital divide, sports, professional career development, sexuality, role of religion, college as a choice, and the Black Lives Matter initiative. Practitioners will be encouraged to
reflect on their own practices as they work toward engagement of Black males in learning communities.
