Few studies examine the role fathers play in the development of their African-American child's academic achievement, despite the growing body of research on the role mothers play on their students' achievement. To fill this gap, this present study of Father and Child examines how the father or male surrogate influences the development of African-American students in the six dimensions of personal identity, social sensitivity, academic self-concept, resilience, race theory, and vision of own success. The results examined in this book indicate differences between academically successful African-American students with a father or male surrogate and academically unsuccessful students without such a role model. Dr. A'lon Holliday provides perspective, facts and further understanding on how this dynamic has helped to shape certain communities.
