Breaking Barriers 2 analyzes the survey responses of a spectrum of black males: high achievers and low achievers; those with arrest records and those without; those who have participated in delinquent activities and those who have not; those who go to safe schools and those who do not; and those who live in safe communities and those who do not. In total, 4,470 responses from school-age black males from across the nation helped provide a picture of the life and circumstances of those who choose to do the right thing, avoid criminal justice involvement, and enjoy higher levels of academic success.

This report was produced by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Center for Policy Analysis and Research, with funding from the Open Society Foundations Campaign for Black Male Achievement.
