Editorial Reviews

?A collection of loosely connected, laconic, sometimes nostalgic personal reflections on minority education. Willie has drawn a significant amount of this book from his previous publications. Part 1 includes three chapters related to concepts, goals, and policies. A chapter on education and public policy is well conceptualized and presents a strong argument for inclusiveness over exclusiveness.' Chapter 5, in Part 2, summarizes the results of an empirical study concluding that there is an association among race, gender, and socioeconomic status and subsequent life chances. Useful labor statistics are presented and analyzed. Part 3 describes two minority-leadership development programs, the education of liberation leaders Moses, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr., a brief history of Morehouse College, and harvard's diverse and high-quality student body. The description of effective and ineffective teaching in the fourth section is interesting.... The book's most valuable chapter is on how mentoring can enhance the opportunities of black students and faculties on campuses. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate students.?-Choice
