Ivory Toldson, executive director of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities, will give remarks at a conference on black male achievement and the school-to-prison pipeline on Thursday, May 12, in Washington, D.C. He will discuss strategies to effectively prepare school-age black males for higher education. In addition, he will highlight the Department's Civil Rights Data Collection to discuss ineffective and discriminatory school discipline policies that undermine students' educational experiences.

The conference—hosted by the Ronald W. Walters Leadership and Public Policy Center at Howard University in Washington, D.C.—will be a convening of academic, policy and program experts to discuss increasing black male achievement and reducing the prison pipeline.
