Overview

Prophetic Insight explores contentious issues in higher education concerning black students relative to larger society, while providing the competing perspectives needed to understand and evaluate multiculturalism and the diverging exigencies facing the higher education system in America. Ernest N. Bracey invites conversation about the pedagogy of blacks, discusses the current state of Black Studies, the W.E.B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington debate, and Afrocentricity. He invites an appreciation of the beginnings and roots of black education in America, recognizing the debate over affirmative action, and explores the uniqueness of historically black colleges and universities. Most importantly, Bracey provides constructive and analytical information on the necessary methods of examining African American politics and higher education within the context of historical and contemporary issues.

Nevada's chair for the National Association of African-American studies and an instructor of political science and Black American history at a community college, Bracey looks at historical factors to explain the woes of African American education today. He begins with the pedagogical theories of W. E. B. DuBois and Booker T. Washington, and discusses the development of historically black colleges and universities, black studies and black feminism, Molefi Kete Asante and the legitimacy of Afrocentricity, the politics of race, and the future of black colleges and universities in the US.
