Young, Gifted and Black Promoting High Achievement among African-American Studentsde Theresa Perry, Claude Steele
“An important and powerful book” that radically reframes the debates swirling around the academic achievement of African-American students (Boston Review)
In three separate but allied essays, African-American scholars Theresa Perry, Claude Steele, and Asa Hilliard examine the alleged ‘achievement gap’ between Black and white students. Each author addresses how the unique social and cultural position Black students occupy—in a society which often devalues and stereotypes African-American identity—fundamentally shapes students' experience of school and sets up unique obstacles. Young, Gifted and Black provides an understanding of how these forces work, opening the door to practical, powerful methods for promoting high achievement at all levels.
