African American Culture and Heritage in Higher Education Research and Practice

By Kassie Freeman | Go to book overview

by functioning as scholar-activists to increase African American faculty representation in their institutions. By addressing this important issue of systematic exclusion from the faculty ranks and demonstrating that they understand the importance of ensuring access to and representation within, institutions of higher education, African American academic intellectuals can reconnect with their communities. If successful, their fight to increase the African American faculty presence within their respective colleges and universities will also make these institutions more welcoming places for African American students. The efforts show, in dramatic fashion, that they are willing to jeopardize their relatively comfortable positions to try to improve the circumstances and the futures of their brothers and sisters.
