Overview

Cultural Collision and Collusion addresses the complexity of problems that surround youth culture and school culture. By broadening the scholarly dialogue and examining and disseminating relevant research to practitioners, the book seeks to provide insight into youth culture and some manifestations of popular culture (e.g., hip-hop). In addition, the book examines some of the tensions that develop when the values of youth and adults collide in U.S. schools. Finally, the book mines the extant literature for insight and enlightenment in the best interest of academic inquiry and practical applicability.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«This book is one of the most comprehensive works to appear on this topic in decades. It is insightful, precise, and essential to the field of education, particularly urban education. Various educational stakeholders will benefit by reading this text. This book is a must-have if you are genuinely concerned about educating youth in the hip-hop generation.» (Chance W. Lewis, Endowed Chair and Associate Professor of Urban Education, Texas A&M University)
«‘Cultural Collision and Collusion’ is an outstanding piece of interdisciplinary scholarship that compels us to rethink our assumptions about the way we educate African American youth. Floyd D. Beachum and Carlos R. McCray reject the deficit thinking so common in research on the topic and instead insist that we build our teaching and leadership in schools on the strength, passion, beauty, and brilliance of African American values and cultures.» (Jeffrey S. Brooks, University of Missouri; Author of ‘Black School, White School: Racism and Educational (Mis)leadership’)
