From the Publisher"This volume consists of 15 essays that address some of the most important issues black scholars face in the environment of contemporary higher education. These essays not only effectively document the root causes of an inimical environment that is reflective of both the structure and culture of higher learning in the US but also propose solutions that would aid in the transformation of this hostile environment into one that would more culturally and structurally reflect the heritage and identity of black scholars. The collective writings of these scholars also fuction as one of the solutions, i.e., being a council of Jegnoch (Elders) in higher education for other African Americans who are already involved or are becoming involved in higher education. The positions and propositions put forth in this work demand the attention and support of white administrators and faculty at all levels of higher learning. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels."
"I believe the information provided can be useful to those who work with diverse populations in general and African American males in particular. I would recommend this book to advisors because of the insight it providea about what their student group may experience prior to and during their college careers."
"This book provides an occasion to examine the complex conjuncture between the White supremacist realities of the American Academy and the often threatening presence of brilliant Black men in the Academy. This challenging book should also serve as an inspiration for a new generation of Black men deeply devoted to the life of the mind in or outside the Academy."
