Whited Out: Unique Perspectives on Black Identity and Honors Achievement - Counterpoints 331 (Hardback)Anthony A. Pittman (author)
- We can order this
Using participation in an honors curriculum as a symbol of explicitly recognized intelligence at the collegiate level, Whited Out explores the identities of several Black collegiate honors students, focusing in particular on how they think about race, achievement, and social engagement. The book sheds new light on why some Black students experience academic success and some do not. Perhaps most importantly, the book illustrates why "acting White" should not be among the rationales upon which many scholars predicate their arguments for the existing disparity between Black and White students' academic performance.
