Description:  A national report created by the National Black Child Development Institute that challenges the overemphasis on limitations and, instead,  focuses on the strengths of Black children, families, and communities. The report includes a mixture of essays from experts, information from organizations, and data focused on ways the Black community’s strengths improve outcomes for children, including examples of where Black children and families are succeeding.
