The Foundation for the Mid South, which focuses on quality of life issues in Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, recently released a report that shows Black males between 16-44 in the South are more likely to become drop outs, have little or no health insurance and die by homicide than their White counterparts. The foundation sent copies of the report to lawmakers, nonprofits and business leaders in an attempt to improve conditions for Black men in these areas where poverty is the leading cause for the disparity.
