Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
04/15/2014
The field of gifted education has always been vulnerable to charges of elitism. Lacking a standard definition for what constitutes "giftedness" means that an element of arbitrariness invades the selection of students for gifted programming. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the way these curricula tend to serve a disproportionate number of white and economically privileged students. While critics may condemn this as simply another kind of tracking and try to advocate for a more equitable distribution of such academic offerings, editors Grantham, Michelle Frazier Trotman Scott, and Deborah Harmon present a collection of first-person testimonies that reveal gifted African American students fighting to be recognized and provided with enriching educational opportunities. Nearly all the contributors to this volume, now adults, are either studying or teaching at the college level. Chapters are short (usually ten pages or less) and are grouped thematically under section headings such as "Black Males Overcoming" and "Gifted Black Students in College." VERDICT While there are a number of books in print that address the intersections of multiculturalism and gifted education, this is one of the only volumes to deal specifically with firsthand accounts. As the material could have benefited from closer editing and firmer grounding in academic research, it is not essential but is still recommended for libraries that serve teachers seeking credentials in the field.—Seth Kershner, Northwestern Connecticut Community Coll.
