Description : Co-edited by Historically Black College and University (HBCU) alumni Dr. Tia Tyree and Christopher D. Cathcart, HBCU Experience – The Book celebrates the rich legacy and experiences of those who attended HBCUs. This groundbreaking anthology chronicles undergraduate realities, such as dating and relationships, dorm living, road trips, pledging fraternities and sororities, student activism and leadership; athletics and more. Further, with the debate still raging over the relevance and need for HBCUs in the new millennium, this collection of essays helps showcase the unique experiences of HBCU graduates, highlights the important need for these institutions and accentuates the overall benefits of having an HBCU education. "I love the HBCU Experience; there's nothing like it. Most of the people I hired as staff or interns through the years came from an HBCU, and the most prominent icons of the Civil Rights Movement came out of the HBCU Experience; which included stellar leaders like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Congressman John Lewis, Ambassador Andrew Young, Stokely Carmichael, NAACP Leader Medgar Evers and Actor/Activist Ossie Davis." -Jeff Burns, Jr., Author, "The Brotherhood of Drew Hall" “HBCU Experience - The Book is a fulfilling memoir. The book is a legacy to be treasured, with first-person accounts that offer readers an authentic reality as they learn or reminisce.” -Jannette L. Dates, Ph.D., Dean Emerita of the Howard University School of Communications; co-editor/primary author of ”Split Image: African Americans in the Mass Media” and co-author of “The Obamas and Mass Media: Race, Gender, Religion, and Politics” “The HBCU culture and history is so rich that it deserves to have its stories told. As a custodian of the HBCU flame, I am thankful we have Tia and Chris to be our lions and this wonderful book to tell our tales." -Michael J. Sorrell, Esq,. President of Paul Quinn College "Capturing the true essence of the HBCU experience is nearly impossible for people who are not HBCU alumni – until now. This book is a must-read for alums who want to reflect on the ‘good old days’ and for high school students considering their college options." - Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President & CEO of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund

Description : Why do Jews win so many Nobel Prizes and Pulitzer Prizes? Why are Mormons running the business and finance sectors? Why do the children of even impoverished and poorly educated Chinese immigrants excel so remarkably at school? It may be taboo to say it, but some cultural groups starkly outperform others. The bestselling husband and wife team Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, and Jed Rubenfeld, author of The Interpretation of Murder, reveal the three essential components of success – its hidden spurs, inner dynamics and its potentially damaging costs – showing how, ultimately, when properly understood and harnessed, the Triple Package can put anyone on their chosen path to success.

Description : Rethinking LGBTQIA Students and Collegiate Contexts situates and problematizes identity interaction, campus life, student experiences, and the effectiveness of services, programs, and policies affecting LGBTQIA college students at both two- and four-year institutions. This volume draws from intersectional and critical perspectives to explore the complex ways in which LGBTQIA identities are shaped, discussed, and researched in higher education spaces. Chapters provide student affairs and higher education scholars with theory and practice perspectives on sociopolitical and historical contexts, student learning and development, support services, and explore how higher education reflects society’s pervasive stereotypes and lack of awareness of LGBTQIA students’ identity development and needs.

Description : In 1962, the Heritage Series of Black Poetry, founded and edited by Paul Breman, published Robert Hayden's A Ballad of Remembrance. By 1975, the Series had published 27 volumes by some of the twentieth-century's most important and influential poets. As elaborated in Lauri Ramey's extensive scholarly introduction, this innovative volume has dual purposes: To provide primary sources that recover the history and legacy of this groundbreaking publishing venture, and to serve as a research companion for scholars working on the Series and on twentieth-century black poetry. Never-before-published primary materials include Paul Breman's memoir, retrospectives by several of the poets published in the Series, a photo-documentary of W.E.B. Du Bois's 1958 visit to The Netherlands, poems by poets represented in the Series, and scholarly essays. Also included are bibliographies of the Heritage poets and of the Heritage Press Archives at the Chicago Public Library. This reference work is an essential resource for scholars working in the fields of black poetry, transatlantic studies, and twentieth-century book history.

Description : African Studies as a field of inquiry has had to combat the insidious interpretations of racist theories used to justify the domination and colonisation of the continent for the past five hundred years. While this has not been the complete history of the field, it has yielded numerous historians who have either misunderstood or deliberately distorted the idea of African agency. Now Jacob Gordon has brought together some of the finest minds in the field to establish the parameters for the future. There have been two general movements in the past one hundred years that have reflected the ideas of Africans toward the doctrine of white supremacy in African Studies and other fields: Negritude and Afrocentricity. Both of these movements have attendants, variances, and oppositions. Nevertheless they may be said to speak to the same problem confronting the African people in a global way and African Studies specifically. This book represents an advance in the conceptualisation of African leadership and political direction. There have always been models of leadership, rooted deeply in the culture, responsive to the historical contexts of the people themselves, that have been used by African leaders. However, what the authors in this volume are committed to is the development of ideas and ideals that will lend continuity to the best traditions of the African people.
