Collegiate Black men and problem finding

I close my book focusing on a moment in spring 2013 when guys in my class and I participated in extended discussions about what could be done to address challenges confronting black people. We raised questioned, considered various angles, and revised our own previous positions. 

In short, we engaged in problem finding.

Somehow, we kept returning to two recurring topics: bad men and vulnerable black boys. In some respects, our discussions resembled the kinds of explorations exhibits by many black writers we studied. I look forward to producing more observations and writings about the many lessons I learned reading and thinking with collegiate black men.   
This entry is part of a series--28 Days & Ways of Thinking about Bad Men & Vulnerable Black Boys.
