From the Publisher"At a time when the presence of African American males in higher education is declining at an alarming rate, the voices of these scholars—who hail from an array of institutional settings—offer inspiration and hope. The authors...provide a rarely examined look at their lives as professors working in a career path that too few Americans associate with Black men."
"These brothers of the academy represent the kind of role models which, unfortunately, are in short supply in our communities. Just as importantly...they capture the pulse of the issues impacting African Americans in the academy."
"Brothers of the Academy offers unique and thought-provoking perspectives which every serious educator should examine.... A must read for all who are serious about increasing African American participation in higher education."
"Demonstrates the versatility of young male scholars who are beginning to take their place at the intellectual table. This book is sure to become a classic."
"A remarkable and engaging resource that brings together the scholarship of young brothers in the academy. This wonderful work includes a network of analyses and ideas which enable us to transcend and surmount the obstacles, both internal and external, which confront us."
"The scholars represented in this book are the academic pathfinders of the twenty-first century. They will light the way and assist in and insist on higher education becoming a truly multiethnic and multicultural enterprise."
"The thinkers who contribute to this book bring a sharp focus to the issue of creating the climate necessary on the campuses of American colleges and universities to accomodate diversity on the higher administrative levels. They bring analytical thinking to a host of other issues and concerns of black men in academe.... (This) is an important book, not only for the significant essays contained in it, but for the promise represented by the twenty-six men who are showcased here...The best is yet to come from this group."
"W.E.B. DuBois' prophecy concerning the uplifting of our race by the talented tenth is well represented by these Black male scholars."
"...An essential work by young Black scholars addressing critical issues."
