A new report has found that the key to Boston's prosperity lies within one of its most vulnerable populations: young black and Latino men.

The Tufts University report goes on to say that if Boston wants to ensure its future social and economic well-being, it needs to better invest in programs and services for this demographic, who comprise two-thirds of all males 19 and younger and who are most at risk of growing up in poverty.


James Jennings, professor of urban and environmental planning at Tufts University and the author of the report.
