Despite greater emphasis on college and career readiness in PK-12 education, gifted Black males with disabilities still encounter various barriers in making successful transitions to postsecondary educational opportunities. These barriers include negative educational experiences, deficit ideologies, and limited opportunities for positive identity development, which all, in turn, impact their college and career readiness. Provided these experiences, it is imperative that educational stakeholders, including school counselors and school psychologists, work together to address systemic barriers while utilizing mentorship and peer support to foster positive college and career readiness.
