Black role models: which messages work?

E-mail Print

Black boys and Black young men in England continue to face serious challenges in every sector of society, from education and employment to involvement with the criminal justice system.

REACH, established in February 2006, is one of a number of project groups set up as successors to the Stephen Lawrence Steering Group and the Race Equality Advisory Panel, to focus on raising the aspirations and achievements of Black boys and young men, enabling them to reach their full potential. It is independent of, but supported by, Communities and Local Government (CLG) and has been driven by a group of 25 people who have direct experience of the realities of young people’s lives. In August 2007, REACH reported5 on the serious barriers Black boys and Black young men face and made five recommendations on how to help overcome these challenges.

Recognising the importance of positive, visible Black male role models, one of the recommendations was to introduce a structured national role model programme for Black boys and young Black men.
