...reveals through graceful and lively prose an important yet often overlooked dimension of HBCUs―their significant contributions to the national dialogue on diversity in higher education. These essays are spirited, inspiring and passionate. (Dr. Michael T. Nettles, University of Michigan)
Honest and riveting testimonies on the adaptation of white faculty members as minorities in historically black universities and colleges. This collection shows that respect is an essential component in effective student-teacher relations as well as in effective race relations. (Charles V. Willie, Charles William Eliot Professor Emeritus, Harvard Graduate School of Education)
At a time when the higher education landscape is undergoing rapid transformations and the role of the black college is being passionately debated, Foster, Guyden and Miller provide a poignant, praiseworthy, and pioneering intervention. Here is a work that lays to rest once and for all the dominant stereotype that historically black colleges are monolithic. Creatively working with the tradition of heuristic research, the editors frame a compelling cohort of original essays. Drawing on the actual voices of white faculty, Affirmed Action gives us an important handle on the common experiences of underrepresented and marginalized academics and their struggles to be included. (M. Christopher Brown, II, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
