Making it on broken promises : leading African American male scholars confront the culture of higher education by Lee Jones( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sixteen of America's leading scholars offer an uncompromising critique of the academy from their perspective as African American men." "They challenge dominant majority assumptions about the culture of higher education, most particularly its claims of openness to diversity and divergent traditions." "What is remarkable about the chapters that make up this book - despite the authors' different paths to success, their disparate fields of study, and their distinct voices - is their almost unanimous message that higher education is inimical to African Americans."--Jacket
