    (BPRW) Dr. Sanusi Umar Invents New Hair Restoration Tools for Afro-Textured Hair: FUE Hair Transplants Possible For Tight Curly Hair - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal

    In a new study published in the journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery- Global Open, Dr. Sanusi Umar Advances FUE for African-Mixed Patients.


    Dr. Sanusi Umar


    (Black PR Wire) For years, individuals of African descent seeking linear scar free follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants have to undergo pre-testing only to be turned away by hair transplant surgeons using the traditional methods. The challenges to FUE posed by African type hair (tight curly hair, texture, and tissue characteristics) causes a high failure rate that makes many hair restoration surgeons shy away and offer individuals of African descent only linear scar causing hair transplant methods. For men and women who want to wear their hair short, the linear scar tells the world they have had hair restoration surgery.

    Using the latest addition to his patented UGraft® equipment, called the UPunch Curl™, the 18 patients studied experienced 100% success. The finding suggests no pre-testing is required prior to FUE hair transplant surgery. The challenge to traditional FUE methods of hair transplantation in persons with Afro-textured hair is the poor graft / hair viability that is caused by an increased graft damage rate during surgery. Using conventional FUE methods, the damage rate can be as high as 80%. In the new study by Dr. Umar (DrU) using the newly invented UPunch Curl, most patients had a graft damage rate of less than 5% of grafts. Even in the most extreme cases of diseased and scarred scalps from a condition called acne keloidalis nuchae (AKN), the graft damage rate did not exceed 10%. A “Yes” for all patients involved. www.dru.com

    The UPunch Curl™ was also compared to other conventional rotary punch tools used in the FUE method. The significantly superior graft damage rates observed with the UPunch Curl™ is attributed to its unique design, which accommodates the curliness of the hair. The UPunch Curl™ allows FUE from individual hair follicles rather than from a removed strip of tissue that may waste hair follicles, now a problem of the past.

    Dr. Umar notes that “patients with the most tightly curled hair are of African descent, but these individuals are not a homogenous group, with variability in degree of curliness between groups from different countries. Variations also exist in the same individual when hair is taken from different scalp regions. All of these variations reflect either ethnic mixing …that has occurred over generations as well as genetic variations. This technique now allows these individuals to undergo hair transplantation while minimizing the poor outcomes associated with the traditional FUE method. While this initial study evaluated only 18 patients from various Geo-ethnic backgrounds, I believe that the findings point the way to a universal approach in FUE for people with tightly curled Afro-textured hair.”

    Regardless of ethnicity, through this new approach to FUE it is possible to restore hair loss that results from the more common genetics as well as repair of poorly executed surgeries from the past. UGraft Revolution and UPunch Curl are currently only available from the inventor Dr Sanusi Umar. According to Dr Umar the UPunch Curl would be made commercially available to hair transplant doctors along with the necessary training. www.dru.com

    Supporting Men Teachers and Their Contributions to Education

    William Jackson, M.Edu
    2015-2016 Teacher of the Year – Venetia Elementary
    Duval County Public Schools – Member of M.E.N. in DCPS
    Instructor with Edward Waters College
    Teaching Educational Technology and Social Media
    Volunteer of “Call Me Mister Program” mentoring and
    supporting young men in college entering into the profession of education.


    “Where are the male teachers? And, more broadly, how can men participate in both traditional and nontraditional educator roles in the communities that need them most. Imagine walking into a school that has an equal number of men and women educating and leading our next generation.

    Think of the difference male teachers and role models could make in our country, a place where at least 57% of schools are in high poverty and urban environments. As school districts are becoming more and more diverse, yes less diverse in their teaching force, the balance must shift toward an equal number of male and female teachers. Men who want to impact our next generation of leaders will enjoy the Men Educator's Network..... for conversation, sharing, supporting, inspiring! M.E.N.” of DCPS

    Let’s not talk about the decline of Male Teachers, let’s not talk about the lack of African American, Asian, Latina, and other cultures in the educational profession. Let’s not address the extinction of the male presence in a growing number of school classrooms and districts across the nation. Let’s look at the here and now of helping male teachers that are working as educators, administrators and support personnel to contribute to the success of all students. Department of Education data shows less than 5% of this nation’s teachers are African American men and less than 15% are men. This speaks volumes because kids need to see male teachers and teachers of color. The visual identity that African American men and other men of color and culture can be positive, productive and purposeful is a mind blowing experience for children of color and culture that may not have these visual representations of stability, pride and success.

    Teaching is hard work at any level, I have 27 years in public education at the time of this blog and 17 years in higher education. The work has always been worthwhile, valuable, and rewarding, it can be stressful and the rewards are delayed because it is dependent on working to get youth, teens and young adults to see their potential and work towards it. Sometimes it involves getting parents to see how important they are to the educational process as well.

    All men from administrators, educators, custodians, cafeteria workers, and teacher aides are important because they represent a support system for boys and girls, the potential of their success and hope for the future that our young people can gain from the experiences and wisdom of men. The potential to grow beyond current circumstances and the hope for a better life. From the article, “Black Male Teachers Becoming Extinct,” March 2012 (CNN) Teris King, shares a feeling that other male teachers share, “I fill a void in their (students) lives.” He shares truth because to many boys and girls do not have consistent and positive male role models. Extending his experiences that, “A lot of them have never felt what it feels like to shake a man’s hand, tell them right from wrong in a caring way. They need someone in their lives that are educated and positive.”

    Even though data shows low income students need interaction from professional men, true to life all students need to know how to interact with men, to provide instruction on how to mature responsibly, be accountable for their actions, develop critical thinking and higher order thinking skills, understanding and relating to their place in society, their roles as developing young men and their duties/responsibilities as future professionals, husbands and fathers. Programs like the “Teach Campaign,” “Call Me Mister,” “My Brother’s Keeper,” “5000 Role Models” and others are working to encourage and provide financial support to bring more men into education and lead to other professions. To show how empowering education is. Reaching young men early provides opportunities to show young men that they have options through education not crime. They have talents, skills and abilities that can Brand them in order to Market themselves in diverse educational markets anywhere in the nation or the world. The encouraging reports from the Department of Education that this can change with male teachers sharing their experiences with other young men to give them hope through their challenges in life.

    School districts like Duval County Public Schools where I teach are seeing the need of more male teachers, not just physical education and coaching, but in key areas like Pre-K, Kindergarten, and subject areas not traditionally taught by men. Subjects like STEM, STREAM, CSTEM, need men to show the diversity of careers, peer collaboration, networking, and explaining why higher education and vocational education are important to the economic stability of young men. Positive images allow boys and young men to look away from gangs, drugs, and crime to focus on education, to look forward to employment, traveling and careers that they never thought about. Students are generally excited in many cases about having a male teacher because students seek that male nurturing, the acceptance of a male in a positive way and having a caring adult that will teach them, mentor and guide them to success. Male teachers can help young males transition through the rough times of puberty, dating, peer pressure and the insecurities of building who and what they are, the potential to grow and exceed their own expectations.

    Duval County Public Schools is increasing the support of male teachers with the M.E.N meetings that provides unique professional development opportunities to meet the needs of men that are educators, administrators and even support personnel. Even though the populations of many school districts of male teachers are small, Duval County Public Schools knows the influence of male teachers is tremendous and long lasting. DCPS has M.E.N. meeting to support the educational process of male teachers and administrators. Partnering with the “Call Me Mister” program housed at Edward Waters College under the leadership of Mr. Charles Francis these joint partnerships help to continue to build male teachers from the school of Education and Urban Studies at Edward Waters College. Helping new teachers to make the transition from college graduate to educational professional.

    Support programs and national data accumulated, male teachers need to be supported because they share generational successes. Male teachers are held to a higher standard because of their influences as leaders, role models and influencers that extend outside of the classroom and schools. Male teachers influence extends into the community because of their presence and connection with students especially students of color and culture who may not be exposed to a positive model at home. Male teachers are seen coaching, mentoring, in academic and non-academic roles. From my experiences that I know other male teachers share when students see me in the store, in the community and even in the mall there are smiles, handshakes, and hugs from students and parents because of the relationships male teachers create.

    America’s Perfect Woman is Middle Eastern

    New Study Defines America’s ‘Perfect Woman’


    As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but if America had to describe its “Perfect Woman,” who would she be and what would she look like? Date-auction site WhatsYourPrice.com, has released findings from its annual study defining “The Perfect Woman.” The study measured desirability of attributes such as hair and eye color, body type, smoking and drinking habits, and level of education.

    New York - Feb. 9, 2016

    Why settle for average when you can have perfect? A new dating study revealed just how much men are willing to pay for a date with America’s “Perfect Woman.”

    The world’s first date-auction site, WhatsYourPrice.com, released findings from a study asking male members to define the “Perfect Woman.” The data measured how much men were willing to pay for a date with specific physical attributes including hair color, eye color and body type, in addition to characteristics such as lifestyle habits, and education level. The traits were then ranked by how much more than the average WhatsYourPrice offer of $120 men were willing to spend on a date possessing those qualities.

    Results found men were willing to spend $133.94 for a date with America’s “Perfect Woman.” The ideal single lady is 5’9” with dark brown hair, brown eyes, an athletic body type; of Middle Eastern descent; Jewish; with a graduate degree; who doesn’t smoke and only drinks in social situations.

    “Americans have typically favored the blonde-haired, blue-eyed, girl next door type but our study confirms the standard of beauty has shifted,” Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of WhatsYourPrice, said. “While there’s not a set definition of the ’Perfect Woman,’ it’s clear women with darker features like the Kardashian sisters and Gal Gardot will be the ‘It’ girls of 2016.”

    WhatsYourPrice.com, a patent-pending “Dating-for-Dollars” website, allows both men and women to bid for first dates. These “Generous” members bid and pay for first dates with “Attractive” members on the site. Money is exchanged during the date, and second dates may be arranged either online or off.

    About WhatsYourPrice.com
    WhatsYourPrice was launched in April 2011, and has over 1 million members worldwide. It is the only dating website where money can buy you love, or at least a first date. The website provides a platform where Generous members can bid on a first date with an Attractive member. The website gives both types of daters an advantage in the dating market, making it The Online Dating Shortcut.

    Funding for Black Male Achievement Is Growing

    New Research "Quantifies Hope" for Black Men and Boys




    New York, NY — April 14, 2015. A new report jointly released by Foundation Center and the Campaign for Black Male Achievement shows a distinct trend toward increased U.S. foundation funding for organizations and programs that are working to improve the life outcomes of Black males. Education historically receives the largest share of this support, but giving in other areas, including human services and public affairs, has grown. In addition to analyzing U.S. funding trends, Quantifying Hope: Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys describes recent initiatives in the field of Black male achievement.

     Funding for Black Male Achievement Is Growing



    This timely new research is released against a backdrop of national attention to the highly-publicized killings by law enforcement of Walter Scott, Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice, among others; the birth of the #BlackLivesMatter movement; and the launch last year of My Brother's Keeper, a White House initiative to improve the outcomes of boys and young men of color.

    "Momentum has been building on many fronts to address social and racial disparities in our nation, and the time is right to keep pushing forward to improve opportunities for Black men and boys," said Shawn Dove, CEO of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement. "The role of philanthropy in those efforts is critical, and this report highlights the organizations and programs that have made meaningful investments in the growing field of Black male achievement. I am encouraged by the progress we've made so far, and yet it's really only the beginning. We still have a long way to go towards achieving our mission of helping organizations committed to this work build their capacity and strengthen their efforts to maximize the assets and potential of America's Black men and boys."

    The study finds that in 2012, the latest year for which data are available, 98 foundations made grants worth $64.6 million explicitly designed to benefit Black men and boys. This figure was up from $40.4 million in the previous year and continues an upward trend. More than half of all foundation funding for Black males from 2003 to 2012 was distributed in the latest three years.

    "It is critical for philanthropists working to improve the lives of Black males in this country to have as much data and information as possible about the funding landscape," said Seema Shah, director of research for special projects at Foundation Center and lead author of the report. "We are committed to providing research that sheds light on this important national issue.

    The research also identified some quantifiable shifts in giving patterns for Black men and boys. For example, even though the field of education, which has historically garnered the largest share of grants, continued to be a top funding priority, grantmaking for public affairs has significantly increased. Moreover, the top 10 grant recipient organizations consisted of a mix of national civic, policy, and advocacy organizations, in addition to the educational institutions that dominated the list in the past. Half of the top 10 list are Black-led organizations.

    In addition to 2012 giving data, the brief describes a selection of more recent philanthropic investments, including foundation and corporate support fueled by President Obama's My Brother's Keeper initiative, as well as efforts by municipal governments. The report includes essays by Tonya Allen, president and CEO of the Skillman Foundation, and Greg Fischer, Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, who contribute their insights and reflections about their work to improve outcomes for Black men and boys. It also identifies future opportunities for philanthropy and recommends an increase in funding in the area of health and wellness, in southern states, and for general operating support.

    Quantifying Hope: Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys was commissioned from Foundation Center, the leading authority on knowledge about philanthropy, by the Campaign for Black Male Achievement, a national membership network of 3,000 individuals and organizations that was established by Open Society Foundations in 2008 and became a stand-alone organization in January 2015.

    The report follows up on baseline data presented in the 2012 report Where Do We Go From Here? Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys. These reports, along with Building a Beloved Community: Strengthening the Field of Black Male Achievement, are among the growing suite of resources at BMAfunders.org, a website that facilitates engagement, collaboration, and strategic decision making among those working to promote positive outcomes for Black men and boys in America.

    Annual National Suit Drive



    As you may know, the 7th annual National Suit Drive is well under way. After some pre-season closet cleaning, New York Giants stars Jon Beason and Stevie Brown showed their support of the drive by stopping by the Men’s Wearhouse flagship store in Manhattan to drop off a few suits on July 17th just in time before the beginning of training camp on Monday. A month-long initiative ending on July 31st, the campaign encourages donations of gently-used suits and professional attire, for distribution to over 180 local nonprofit organizations that provide job-ready skills and training to men who are reentering the workforce.

    The 2014 National Suit Drive aims to collect 150,000 pieces of used professional attire (men’s and women’s suits, shirts, jackets, ties, pants, belts, and shoes) that will be refurbished and distributed to the partnering nonprofits.

    This publication is a timely resource in light of a growing chorus of national initiatives focused on improving the economic, social, and physical well-being of black males. These include President Obama's announcement in February launching My Brother's Keeper, a public-private partnership supporting young men of color, and the formation of the Executives' Alliance to Expand Opportunities for Boys and Men of Color, launched last year by 26 foundation leaders.

    "The barriers to success that black men face have been in plain sight for decades, so it is particularly heartening to see a movement taking shape that is specifically crafted to address these challenges and change the odds for one of the most disenfranchised populations in America," said Geoffrey Canada, president and CEO of Harlem Children's Zone, in the report's afterword. "We are moving in the right direction, but we need to keep in mind that our commitment must be for the long haul."

    Building a Beloved Community, commissioned from the Foundation Center by the Open Society Foundations' Campaign for Black Male Achievement, explores diverse, multi-disciplinary, and cross-sector efforts in the field. The leaders interviewed for the report include Robert K. Ross, president of the California Endowment; Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation; and Emmett Carson, president and CEO of Silicon Valley Community Foundation. It also includes a foreword by respected philanthropy scholar Lucy Bernholz, an afterword by Geoffrey Canada, and a conclusion offering a vision for success.

    "This report provides a snapshot of the breadth and depth of engagement in the field of black male achievement in this pivotal moment," said Seema Shah, director of research for special projects at the Foundation Center and lead author of the report. "Our hope is that it contributes to ongoing efforts to boost strategic collaboration and invites individuals and organizations from every sector and area of the country to see the role they can play in improving the life outcomes of black men and boys."

    The new report is complemented by additional content at BMAfunders.org, including podcasts from interviews and resources referenced in the volume. This qualitative report builds on the 2012 groundbreaking quantitative research in Where Do We Go From Here? Philanthropic Support for Black Men and Boys, the most comprehensive documentation of the wide variety of philanthropic activity in support of black men and boys. At BMAfunders.org, visitors can also explore a mapping tool that fosters collaboration by showing who's funding what programs where; sign up for e-mail updates to learn about news and events related to black male achievement; and submit grants data, case studies, and philanthropic milestones. Updates are also on Twitter at @BMAfunders.

    (BPRW) NEW NETWORK ASKS YOU TO SHARE YOUR POSITIVE STORIES ABOUT BLACK MEN

    - BMe Community, is a 3,000+ community of inspired black men leading positive change -


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – MIAMI, Fla., – Today, a national story-gathering campaign kicked off to acknowledge black men and boys as assets to society. BMe Community, a high-growth, mission-driven social enterprise is leading this campaign, and has set a goal of getting thousands of people to share stories about black males they know who help others.

    Trabian Shorters, former vice president of communities for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and founder of BMe Community said, “We believe that black men and boys are assets to society. So, we are asking people to share the stories about the black men they know – the coach, the pastor, the neighbor, the co-worker or the friend who inspires in an everyday kind of way.”

    Shorters believes such stories are plentiful if we stop to think about them. He quotes data from the U.S. Census, W.K. Kellogg Foundation studies and researchers such as Ivory Toldson showing that one quarter of all adult black males are military veterans; black people start businesses at a higher rate than other Americans, black Americans give 25% more of their income to charities than do white Americans, and that black males are nearly twice as likely to be in college as they are to be in prison.

    “Patriotic, enterprising and generous is far more normal than the other views of black males. If we told that truth more often, America would be stronger for it,” says Shorters.

    The Everyday Stories campaign will share remarkable facts and true stories from black leaders, influencers, millennials, change-makers and community builders as well as their friends and coworkers from all walks of life.

    Individuals of any race and gender are invited to join the conversation by sharing their own story or taking a pledge to acknowledge the good that they see black males do. BMe Community already has over 3,000 first-person testimonials from inspiring and engaged black men who do their part every day to help build better communities. Founding BMe board member and DonorsChoose.org CEO Charles Best said, “I’m involved with BMe because of its positive orientation and because the stories of these men, and men like Trabian are inspiring. It’s uplifting to share these stories.”

    Some of the people who submit stories will be eligible later this year to become “BMe Leaders” and receive $10,000 to apply towards their community-building work. There are already 70 BMe Leaders total in Baltimore, Detroit and Philadelphia. In 2013 these men provided services to more than 65,000 neighbors on issues ranging from youth development to public health; stopping violence to helping former inmates; protecting the environment to community farming; and spurring entrepreneurship to improving financial literacy.

    Headquartered in Miami, Florida, BMe operates in Baltimore, Detroit, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, with plans to grow nationally. BMe is backed by leading foundations; including the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, and the Heinz Endowment.

    Sharing these stories is an important step towards building more caring and prosperous communities. You can do so at www.bmecommunity.org, on Facebook or Twitter.

    About BMe
    BMe builds caring prosperous communities inspired by black men. We are a high-growth, mission-driven social enterprise developed and backed by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation in partnership with Open Society Foundations. We accomplish our mission by increasing public awareness of inspired black men, awarding grants to them, co-sponsoring events led by them and building a membership network of them and others of all races and genders.

    Gillette BODY


    It’s undeniable that body shaving is on the rise. A recent study conducted by Gillette shows that 73% of U.S. men have shaved or trimmed some part of their body before, and 84% of men who currently shave at least one body part say they shave it year-round.
    Gillette BODY


    But while body shaving is becoming more and more popular, men have largely been navigating without the proper tools, instead experiencing itchiness (50%), nicks and cuts (45%), and not being able to get a close shave (35%). Add to the list that 58% of men said they believed a better razor would enhance their overall body shaving experience and it was obvious that it was time for Gillette to step in.

    The new Gillette BODY razor features:

    · A rounded cartridge so it glides with incredible comfort
    · 3 lubricating bars for outstanding glide
    · Non-slip grip for exceptional control, even in the shower

    The new razors will be available in retail stores on February 14, 2014.

    Black Men and their Image Issues


    - How many of you have met black men who really liked you, but your “image” did not meet their standards? How many really great women get left behind due to artificial, fake and phony requirements of how a person looks over the content of their character? -

    Using myself as an example, I was “engaged” to a Dr. A big deal, but not really. He is not a nice person. Very judgmental, CHEAP, chauvinistic (in 2012) and irresponsible with his money. That said, he was also entertaining, could be charming, but I believe these are also the traits of serial killers!

    Anyway, to get to my point, I wear my hair au natural. It is a nice length, attractive and well kept. Because he had an “image” to maintain, we actually fought over my hair. In 2012, at 56 why would I argue with any man over MY DAMN HAIR?

    Ladies, after your very FIRST disagreement is the time to Pay Attention. This is where old habits may rear their ugly head in both of you.

    hair au natural
    He did apologize, but it took a toll. Made me really take a critical look at every single thing in his life that made me uneasy. You know why? Because after you move in or get married, you GET really critical. Might as well do the critical thinking up front. Write it down if you need to. Everything, this is no time to be generous. It is the time to be brutally honest.

    I have met plenty of men (like him) who GET the woman that met their standards! My question is if you GET what you ASK FOR, what is the problem?

    Why should you care if the person is a bitch, belittles you or makes you feel less than a man? None of these issues mattered when you had the choice to find out what this woman was/is really about. Nope, you were too busy talking about how “fine” she was, how good she looks when you go out, etc. None of those physical characteristics take the place of kindness, authenticity, consideration, genuine caring and really liking the person you are with. Oh yeah, looks fade, especially when they have been artificially enhanced.

    While it may do your ego good to have the fellas falling out over your latest conquest, if you are miserable, drinking and drugging just to deal with this person, you made a mistake. Man up and move on.

    The mistake is compounded when, even after you get out of this (and your last several relationships); you try to remake your current lady to YOUR STANDARDS.

    Check this out fellas- If you cannot talk to your lady, if she does not make you laugh, smile when you are not with her and long for her company when you are apart, her looks mean nothing. Not a thing.

    So, the next time you are complaining to a female friend, be aware that even when you are offered advice, freely, you could actually listen. This time, I wish you would both listen and comprehend.

    I am pulling for you brothers! I know you cannot be as selfish, self centered and shallow as so many of you APPEAR!

    Be blessed in your search! Don’t forget what I just told you!

    Michelle D. Smith has several dating and relationship websites. Her relationship site is called Black Relationships for You. Her dating sites are Classy Black Singles and Single and Sexy Seniors. Relationships are the foundation of our lives. Let us treat each other as the treasures we are! Treat yourself as a treasure and others will respond accordingly! Classy Black Singles.

    Despite Hardships, Black Men in Urban Communities Are Resilient, Researcher Says


    - Health programs should focus on men’s strengths to help them thrive amid societal stressors -

    COLUMBIA, Mo. –Black men, especially those living in low-income, urban areas, face many societal stressors, including racial discrimination, incarceration and poverty. In addition, these men have poorer health outcomes. Now, a University of Missouri faculty member has studied these men’s efforts to negotiate social environments that are not designed to help them attain good health and success.

    “Too often, researchers focus on Black men’s weaknesses rather than their strengths,” said Michelle Teti, assistant professor of health sciences in the MU School of Health Professions. “By understanding what’s working, we can reinforce those positive behaviors and help men make healthier choices.”

    Michelle Teti
    Michelle Teti, assistant professor in the School of Health Professions, studied the resilience of low-income, Black men living in urban areas.
    The study explored resilience—how individuals demonstrate positive mental health regardless of stress and adversity—among low-income Black men living in urban areas. Through interviews, the researchers learned about societal stressors in the men’s lives, including racism, incarceration, unemployment and surviving rough neighborhoods. Despite these hardships, many research participants had found ways to overcome their adversities through five primary forms of resilience: perseverance, commitment to learn from hardships, reflecting and refocusing to address difficulties, creating supportive environments and obtaining support from religion and spirituality.

    “Resilience is not a psychological trait that you either are born with or not; resilience can be taught and nurtured,” said Teti’s co-author and principal investigator of the study, Lisa Bowleg, an associate professor in the School of Public Health at Drexel University in Philadelphia. “Accordingly, our findings suggest we can use resilience strategies used by men in our study to teach other low-income Black men how to better protect themselves and their sexual partners from risk despite some harsh social-structural realities.”

    Teti and Bowleg say community members and government officials should do more to prepare Black men for success rather than failure and, in particular, to teach them protective behaviors against HIV.

    “It is admirable that these men are resilient in the face of such severe challenges; however, the men’s efforts only can be translated into success if they are supported by social environments and policies that change the odds against them,” Teti said.

    “Low-income, Black, urban men desperately need jobs; they need quality educations; they need policies designed to keep them out of prisons. They need opportunities to make living wages for themselves and their families; they need safer neighborhoods,” Bowleg said. “The most disconcerting aspects of our research on resilience were the narratives of men who were doggedly trying to be resilient in the face of seemingly insurmountable social-structural obstacles.”

    The study was published in Qualitative Health Research. Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Child Health and Development, this research is part of a larger study, “REPRESENT: The Health and Sexual Experiences of Black Men,” which focuses on understanding Black heterosexual men’s sexual HIV risk and protective behaviors. Coauthors included Ashley Martin from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Richa Ranade and Jenne Massie from Drexel University, David Malebranche from Emory University and Jeanne Tschann from the University of California-San Francisco.
