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.

    African American History Lessons

    I believe that Phophetic Insight is a well written book,it seems to me that Dr. Ernest Bracey is trying to relay a message to the younger African American generation. Being one of his currenet students I feel as if the book serves us very well, I encourage all of his students and other students to read this book
