Summary
"At a time when so many studies of African American students focus on the factors of failure, Academically Gifted African American Male College Students fills a conspicuous void in the research literature on postsecondary education by focusing on success. Like no other work before it, this study goes deep inside the experiences of academically gifted African American men who successfully navigate their way through rigorous college-level programs." "At the heart of this unique and long overdue work are two real-life stories of African American male students: one at a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) and the other at a Traditionally White Institution (TWI). In presenting, comparing, and contrasting these two cases, the book identifies a number of personal characteristics and institutional approaches driving their notable achievements. The result is a guidebook both for gifted African American male students and for the institutions looking to strengthen their support for them-particularly in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
