"This book is a comprehensive exploration of the contoured contexts that influence the access and success of African American males in higher education. The chapters scaffold core knowledge about the experiences of African American males, frame new insights into the critical intersections of black male identity, and construct meaningful recommendations to improve both practice and outcomes on campus. Black Men in College will be useful for years to come."
-- M. Christopher Brown II, President, Alcorn State University
"This is a very thoughtful and in-depth scholarly discourse on African American men who attend HBCUs. Palmer and Wood have assembled an impressive group of scholars who respectfully present the issues facing African American men in our society, on college campuses, in Greek letter organizations, and in non-traditional academic fields. I am hopeful that the interventions, strategies, and policies presented by these scholars will be implemented by elementary and secondary schools as well as by PWIs and HBCUs."
-- Mary Howard-Hamilton, Professor of Higher Education, Indiana State University
