The Education of Young Black Males in Britain. This Channel 4 video is about the work of Spenser Holland, a black American educational psychologist who initiated Project 2000, a mentoring scheme in which unpaid volunteer black males support and have continuing contact with young black boys, many of whom live in a single-parent household headed by their mothers. Around 85 per cent of the boys involved performed at or significantly above their expected age potential: a reversal of the situation in schools with no such scheme. Pounds 16.95. Hopeline Videos, PO Box 515 6LQ.
