Excerpt

This collection of readings reflects the contributions of the Thinking and Development Team (TDT) for the African American Learners Project (AALP). These readings are intended to inform the thinking and practice of individual teacher-consultants and/or writing project sites interested in addressing the racial gap in achievement by expanding their own knowledge base as they seek to enhance the academic performance of African American learners.

The contributors offer texts that they have found informative, provocative, affirming, and in many cases, inspiring. These texts have helped the contributors examine the history and status of African American education in our nation in the context of the landmark decision rendered in Brown v. Board of Education (1954; 1955).
