Young Black Men face significant barriers that often hinder them from pursuing and/or completing a college education. Data from a University of Pennsylvania study showed, “Two-thirds of Black men who start at public colleges and universities do not graduate within six years.” Black young adults not only have substantially more student loan debt than their white counterparts (68.2 percent more) but are not nearly as protected by their parents' wealth as their white counterparts, according to a Dartmouth College study.
