In 2011, Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter relaunched the Mayor's Commission on African-American Males (MCAAM) to study conditions faced by Black men and boys and to make recommendations on how to affect positive outcomes. This publication was the first report submitted to the Mayor and highlights the key activities of the commission, presents the "birth to opportunity pipeline," and recommends policies to improve outcomes for African-American males in the city.
