"In SigHT, Dr. Amanishakete Ani takes an introspective look at the thought and behavioral processes of African American students who apparently have many of the answers to what must be done to end achievement problems in the community, and restore success and dignity back to the Pan African community. In addition to intensive interviews of six junior high school achievers, historical analyses that relate to contemporary problems in education and society are provided. It is conclued that hope for the future depends on cultural and social awareness, not better school districts or even teacher quality.--P. [4] of cover.
