President Obama will announce Thursday a new White House initiative, called My Brother's Keeper, to help young men of color. The program will bring together foundations and companies to test ways to keep young male minorities in school and out of prison. The effort will seek “to make sure that every young man of color who is willing to work hard and lift himself up has an opportunity to get ahead and reach his full potential," according to a White House official. The president has been mentoring a small group of black teens he met in Chicago last year.
