“Without education, there is no hope for our people, and without hope, our future is lost,” said Charles Hamilton Houston more than one hundred years ago.

“Without education, there is no hope for our people, and without hope, our future is lost,” said Charles Hamilton Houston more than one hundred years ago. Educator Dr. Sandy Woodrow Yancy Sr. echoes the same sentiment in his book, The Retention of First Year Black Male Students at Predominantly White Private and Public Universities and Colleges.
 
Having worked in the academic field for many years, Dr. Yancy decided to study the factors in the successful retention of black students in largely white dominated universities and colleges. He gathered six participants studying in the area of Washington, DC. He analyzed the data of their school experiences to find out the factors that contributed to their academic success.
 
Through his research, Dr. Yancy came up with several insights and suggestions that can be used by education professionals to improve the retention of students, especially African Americans. With his book, Dr. Yancy hopes to encourage more black students to pursue their education at the school they want.
