Within the pages of Oscar J. Dowdell-Underwood, Ph.D.’s new book, Bumblebees Can Fly – Empowering Young Men of Color, ($16.99, paperback, 9781498444422) readers will discover the relationship between marginalization, perceptions of mattering, and achievement among young men of color.

Strategies for parents, educators, government, policymakers, community leaders, and nonprofit organizations are also discussed.
