The issue of diversity on college campuses automatically conjures up the familiar scenario of the individual scholar of ethnic descent struggling to overcome the obstacles of predominantly white universities. While this certainly remains a reality on campuses across the country, little has been written about the lives and careers of a different minority__white professors in the realm of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU). Here for the first time is a wide-ranging collection of essays by white faculty who explore the unique goals, successes, and challenges they encounter in choosing the unusual position of the OotherO in a higher education environment dedicated first and foremost to the empowerment of Black Americans. Edited by three African American scholars at HBCUs and a predominantly white university, this rich array of voices, all speaking on behalf of academic freedom and equality of opportunity, comes at a particularly contentious moment in higher education, as institutional diversity struggles against continued assaults on affirmative action.

About the Author:

Lenoar Foster is associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Montana. Janet A. Guyden is associate professor of educational leadership at Florida A&M University. Andrea L. Miller, formerly vice-president for academic affairs and dean of faculty at LeMoyne-Owen College, is interim vice-president for academic and student affairs at Shelby State Community College.

Review:

...reveals through graceful and lively prose an important yet often overlooked dimension of HBCUs―their significant contributions to the national dialogue on diversity in higher education. These essays are spirited, inspiring and passionate. (Dr. Michael T. Nettles, University of Michigan)

Honest and riveting testimonies on the adaptation of white faculty members as minorities in historically black universities and colleges. This collection shows that respect is an essential component in effective student-teacher relations as well as in effective race relations. (Charles V. Willie, Charles William Eliot Professor Emeritus, Harvard Graduate School of Education)

At a time when the higher education landscape is undergoing rapid transformations and the role of the black college is being passionately debated, Foster, Guyden and Miller provide a poignant, praiseworthy, and pioneering intervention. Here is a work that lays to rest once and for all the dominant stereotype that historically black colleges are monolithic. Creatively working with the tradition of heuristic research, the editors frame a compelling cohort of original essays. Drawing on the actual voices of white faculty, Affirmed Action gives us an important handle on the common experiences of underrepresented and marginalized academics and their struggles to be included. (M. Christopher Brown, II, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
