Abstract: This thesis examines themes found throughout articles from The New York Times concerning the education of African American boys over the time period from 1991 to 2015. Looking at programs designed to promote educational attainment, ideas about academic achievement and behavior, and general impressions, this thesis explores the intersection of race and gender and how power affects children. Ideas about how the modern racial climate affects the way that children and their education are treated, and how a lack of racial privilege starts Black boys off in a disadvantaged position in life.
