Being Black is Not a Risk Factor: A Strengths-Based Look at the State of the Black Child

This report aims to challenge the prevailing discourse about Black children from one that overemphasizes limitations and deficits to one that draws upon strengths, assets, and resilience. It weaves together: (1) essays by experts; (2) examples of places where Black children are succeeding; and (3) data on how Black children and families are doing to determine how best to support Black children. Individual state reports are available for Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
