This chapter discusses the social and economic challenges faced by African American males. It then proposes a three-step policy process that would greatly improve the wellbeing, social integration, and potentially the economic status of African American males in the United States. These options are by no means easy to implement or even to agree upon, but they are designed to provoke discussion and to implement action — before things get worse.

Keywords:   African American males, social status, public policy, economic status
