Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe: A Global Leader, Whose Passion and Vision Continues to Transform the Lives of Young Men of Color
by Carter, Parris, Ed.D., Union Institute and University, 2019, 90; 27773284
Abstract (Summary)

Black men have always, and continue to face a unique set of challenges, as they navigate through a rapidly changing global society. There is a need to assist in countering the obstacles that manifest into real life challenges, starting early. The subject of this study has created and sustained a national program that builds character, mentors, enhances confidence, encourages academic success, then creates a pipeline to college, while strengthening the likelihood of graduation for these young Black men. This is transformational work, that deserves a critical review. The purpose of this qualitative study was to highlight the work of Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe and examine a model of success for young Black men. In simple context, the Student African American Brotherhood helps young men excel in high school, get into college, and graduate college. This is the primary goal of the organization, that Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe founded and operates. The data clearly demonstrates the significantly higher college graduation rates of SAAB members compared to their Black male non-members across the country. His life and amazing work are the focus of this study.
