Editorial Reviews


Contributes to the field of the history of education by offering a personal portrait of a black school administrator during the Jim Crow era. . . . Historians of education have tended to focus on black leaders in higher education, and Walker's book not only widens the lens but also reveals the complexity of the position.--Jayne Beilke (Dept. of Educational Studies, Ball State University Teachers College), H-Education Reviews

A powerful book.--Ethnic and Racial Studies

Walker's examination of Byas's life successfully rescues from obscurity the stories of similar educators and reestablishes the rightful place of the black professor in the history of black education." --The Journal of Southern History


Hello Professor moves far beyond the study of schools and principals to provide an excellent historical biography of a principal who navigates professional and community organizations to better address the needs of the black community. A very moving story.--Derrick Alridge, University of Georgia

Finally, here is an accounting that gives voice and status to black principals and organizations of the pre-integrated era. Although set in the segregated South, Professor Byas's story transcends time and locality, offering a comprehensive approach to leadership that is fitting armor to attack today's educational woes.--Linda J. Guidry, senior director, The College Board

Hello Professor empirically expands our understanding of the formal and informal ways in which the professional identities of black principals in the segregated South were cultivated, nurtured, protected, and affirmed. Walker and Byas's work illuminates a principal leadership model that is invisible in educational administration scholarship, yet visible in the lived experiences of many.--Melanie Carter, Howard University
