Mocombe will discuss his book on the achievement gap in Black Urban America and the United Kingdom—Jesus and the Streets, co-written with Carol Tomlin and Victoria Showunmi. The book talk will be held at the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center (AARLCC), 2650 Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. The subtitle of Jesus and the Streets is: The Loci of Causality for the Intra-Racial Gender Academic Achievement Gap in Black Urban America and the United Kingdom. In this book, the authors take opposition to other, popular theories of why black males do poorly in academics. The authors note that urban black males in the United States and United Kingdom achieve their status, social mobility and economic gain on the streets and from participating in athletics and entertainment, while black females achieve their status in the black church and through education. Says the author, “Jesus and the Streets offers a more appropriate structural Marxian hermeneutical framework for contextualizing, conceptualizing, and evaluating the locus of causality for the black male/female intra-racial gender academic achievement gap in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.” The African-American Research Library and Cultural Center is located at 2650 Sistrunk Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33311. Call the Welcome Desk at 954-357-6210. For more information about Broward County Libraries, visit broward.org/library.
