Historically Black colleges and universities play a vital role in the education of African Americans in the United States. For nearly 150 years, these institutions have trained the leadership of the Black community, graduating the nation s African American teachers, doctors, lawyers, and scientists. Despite the wealth of new research on Black colleges, there are topics that remain untouched and accomplishments that go unnoticed by the scholarly community. The chapters in this edited volume focus on topics that deserve further attention and that will push students, scholars, policymakers, and Black college administrators to reexamine their perspectives on and perceptions of Black colleges.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is an excellent collection of essays about the enduring character, contributions and impact of Black colleges on American higher education and the larger society. It is further a solid contribution to an expanding literature on HBCUs as each chapter is based on seminal research that enhances our understanding of their unique role and mission." - Alvin Schexnider, former president of Winston Salem State University and former interim president of Norfolk State University

"From the moment of their inception in the nineteenth century, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) simultaneously reflected and challenged the attitudes and assumptions of the dominant American society. Co-editors Gasman and Tudico have assembled a collection of essays that propel scholarship on HBCUs to a new and exciting level. These thoughtful and provocative essays cast a wide intellectual net; and in so doing, they remind us that the Black college is not a static institution forever frozen in a moment of time and potential. Anyone interested in the history, purpose, and promise of HBCUs must acquire this incredible book. - Darryl L. Peterkin, Ph.D., Senior Program Officer & Director of the Center to Serve Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Southern Education Foundation, Atlanta, Georgia
