The Crisis of Black Teen Unemployment with Albert Phillips Jr.
Every year, millions of African American teenagers work to navigate the American job market. Unfortunately, courageous and resilient young people are often under-prepared and face various barriers due to systemic inequities-making them less likely to gain and excel in meaningful employment opportunities.
Author and Youth Advocate Albert Phillips, Jr. joined me in the BalmSheter to discuss his new book, Y'all Hiring? : The Black Teen's Guide to Navigating Employment. And to provide our listeners with some practical, culturally relevant strategies for African American youth seeking to obtain, maintain, and thoughtfully exit a job.
