This book fills an educational void in the school leadership literature as it relates to historical, theoretical, intellectual and cultural understandings among those who prepare individuals for leadership in schools and for those who practice leadership in schools attended by significant numbers of African American students. Contributors to this volume are scholars whose research and service in schools have been important in understanding the historical, intellectual and cultural traditions that facilitate and support effective leadership and in schools where African American school leaders, teachers, students, parents, and their communities of support construct effective and productive 'cultures of empowerment and achievement'. It is these cultures that this volume addresses for their efficacy to support, empower, and sustain visible and measurable achievement among African American students.

Review:

This text fills an important void in the literature on how African Americans view effective public school leadership for schools with Black children. The authors provide important insights about concepts on what are the effective leadership behaviors for schools educating African American Children. These leadership behavioral skill sets should help close the academic achievement gap between White and African American children. (Frank Brown, Cary C. Boshamer Distinguished Professor of Education and dean emeritus, School of Education, University of North Carolina at Ch)

We know that leadership makes a difference in students' learning. With this book, we can better prepare our aspiring leaders to make a difference in African American students' achievement. The authors not only challenge our conception of today's school organization and structure but also inspire us to act in new ways to create cultures of achievement for all students. (Nelda Cambron-McCabe, professor of educational leadership, Miami University, Ohio)
