Abstract:
There is a plethora of research focussing on the underachievement of Black boys but scant attention has been paid to those who are academically successful. This research project adds to the body of knowledge on academically successful Black males It sets out to investigate whether Black male students in the USA and UK who have successfully accessed higher education were exposed to the factors found to correlate with the extensively researched underachievement, I seek to identify the factors that have led to their educational success and influenced their access to and choice of universities.
