Asa Hilliard was an educator, historian, and psychologist whose research on IQ testing and cultural bias was respected nationwide, and this definitive book captures the full magnitude and lasting impact of his scholarship. The book looks at all aspects of his life and offers his perspective in several different academic areas, including early childhood, kindergarten through 12th grade, and college education; test bias; and the importance of African history and culture. Ideal for historians, educators, and psychologists, the book also explores how Hilliard’s legacy can be applied to current educational and cultural issues.
