Black Females:

Blacked Out and Whited Out...

​Black females have been doubly neglected in schools and communities. Black females have unique needs that must be addressed; their needs are similar to and different from Black males and White females.
  • Under-represented in gifted and talented education

  • Under-represented in Advanced Placement
  • Over-represented in special education​

  • Over-represented among suspensions

Ford's FAME -- Female Achievement Model for Excellence -- extends and builds upon the the Scholar Identity Model for Black Males to address the unique racial and gender needs of Black females.

From Impossible to I'm Possible!
