This phenomenological research explored how a selected group of African American male educators understood their own experiences while implementing strategies to academically engage African American male students. The research explored the public secondary education experiences of African American male educators to better understand their occupational understandings; how having more African American educators were helpful in improving the academic engagement of African American male students; what strategies and teaching pedagogies did African American educators use to academically engage African American male students; and what role did race and/or gender play in the academically engaging African American male students.
Data was obtained from at least 10 African American male secondary educators by using an in-depth interview structure with 12 open-ended questions that lasted 50-90 minutes. The results, findings, and conclusion of this study revealed that the recommendations and experiences of African American male educators contributed to developing literature and improve the diversity of the education profession and enhance the academic performance of African American male students.
