Beating the Odds: Raising Academically Successful African-American Males – Review

Beating the Odds: Raising Academically Successful African-American
Males by Freeman A. Hrabowski III, Kenneth I. Maton and Geoffrey L.
Greif, Oxford University Press, $25.00, 240 pages.

Written by the president of the University of Maryland-Baltimore
County, this book reflects much of what the author has learned about
raising the academic success rate of Black males through his
experiences with the acclaimed Meyerhoff Scholars program, which has
operated at UMBC since 1989. The book offers lots of common — and
not-so-common — sense strategies for keeping students on task and on
the honor rolls.
