President Obama announces initiative, My Brother's Keeper, to help Black and Hispanic males

 

Key take a ways from President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Speech:

  • “But 50 years after Dr. King talked about his dream for America's children, the stubborn fact is that the life chances, the average black or brown child in this country, lags behind by almost every measure and is worse for boys and young men.”
  • “My Brother's Keeper is a more focused effort on boys and young men of color who are having a particularly tough time.”
  • “And in this effort, government cannot play the only or even the primary role. We can help give every child access to quality preschool and help them start learning from an early age, but we can't replace the power of a parent who's reading to that child.”
  • “by boosting reading levels, we can help more of our kids make the grade, keep on advancing”
