Gifted and Advanced Black Students in School: An Anthology of Critical Works

African American students who are gifted or advanced learners are
often overlooked and misunderstood in education. Part of the problem
associated with this neglect is that relatively little scholarship exists on
those who are culturally different and in need of more challenge in school
settings. This body of work was developed to help resolve this
shortcoming and to inform and guide educators in their work. The book's
editors have compiled reprints of what they believe to be among the best
or most promising work, past and present, in understanding, meeting the
needs of, and working with Black gifted and/or advanced learners. Theory,
research, models, and strategies shed light on what we all must do to
ensure that both gifted and advanced Black learners excel in school and
otherwise reach their potential.
