Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The editors have provided the best up-to-date analysis of the role that critical race theory plays in helping to understand how prejudice toward and discrimination against people of color continues in society and in our institutions of higher education. The Racial Crisis in American Higher Education, Revised Edition tells us, loud and clear, that colleges and universities in this country have the moral responsibility and authority to create inclusive communities of learning.” — Yolanda T. Moses, President, American Association for Higher Education
