Black Colleges Across the Diaspora : Global Perspectives on Race and Stratification in Postsecondary Education Hardback
Edited by M. Christopher, II Brown, T. Elon, II Dancy
Part of the Advances in Education in Diverse Communities: Research, Policy and Praxis series
This book examines colleges and universities across the diaspora with majority African, African-American, and other Black designated student enrolments.
Research confirms that these campuses possess a flourishing landscape with racial, economic, and gender diversity while sharing a Black identity created through global racialization.
Globally, Black colleges and universities create academic and social environments where different races, sexes, cultures, languages, nationalities, and citizenship status coexist, enabling academic achievement, civic engagement, and colonial resistance. This volume highlights racial hegemony in multi-national student experiences and achievement; examines the social and career implications of attendance on lifelong success; explores the impact of global Black marginalization and racist ideology on Black college communities; and explores the role gender plays in outcomes and attainment.
This timely work engages the diversity of Black colleges and universities and explains their critical role in promoting academic excellence in higher education.
