Abstract:

"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."--BOOK JACKET.
