Synopsis

Why do students who belong to racial minority groups-particularly black students-fall short in school performance? This book provides a comprehensive and critical examination of black identity and its implications for black academic achievement and intellectualism. * Uses African American identity as the framework to understand academic achievement and to expose the biases of "deficit thinking" that presumes that under-achievement among black students is related to deficiencies in motivation, intelligence, culture, or socialization * Presents information and viewpoints informed by empirical research in a manner that is accessible to general readers and non-specialists * Uses personal anecdotes and examples from popular culture to connect with readers and better illustrate the validity of the author's strengths-based approach rather than the conventional deficit-based approach * Challenges the idea that black students are inherently anti-intellectual and do not value school as much as their non-black peers

Kevin O. Cokley, PhD, is professor of educational psychology and African and African diaspora studies at the University of Texas at Austin and editor-in-chief of the Journal of Black Psychology.
