SUMMARY

This volume, informed by diverse perspectives and voices, presents the findings and recommendations of the Commission on Research in Black Education (CORIBE) and offers new directions for research and practice. By commissioning an independent group of scholars to investigate major issues that hinder the education of Black people in the U.S., other Diaspora contexts, and Africa, the American Educational Research Association (AERA) sought to place issues of Black education and research practice in the forefront of the agenda of the scholarly community. An unprecedented critical challenge to orthodox thinking, this book makes an epistemological break with mainstream scholarship. Contributors present research on proven solutions--best practices--that prepare Black students and others to achieve at high levels of academic excellence and to be agents of their own socioeconomic and cultural transformation. These analyses and empirical findings also link the crisis in Black education to embedded ideological biases in research and the system of thought that often justifies the abject state of Black education. Written for both a scholarly and a general audience, this book demonstrates a transformative role for research and a positive role for culture in learning, in the academy, and in community and cross national contexts.King, Joyce Elaine is the author of 'Black Education A Transformative Research And Action Agenda For The New Century' with ISBN 9780805854589 and ISBN 0805854584.
