Young, Gifted, and Black is a unique joint effort by three leading African-American scholars to radically reframe the debates swirling around the achievement of African-American students in school.In three separate but allied essays, Theresa Perry, Claude Steele, and Asa Hilliard place students' social identity as African-Americans at the very center of the discussion. They all argue that the unique social and cultural position Black students occupy, in a society which often devalues and stereotypes African American identity, fundamentally shapes students' experience of school and sets up unique obstacles. And they all argue that a proper understanding of the forces at work can lead to practical, powerful methods for promoting high achievement at all levels.Theresa Perry argues that African-American students face dilemmas, founded in the experience of race and ethnicity in America, that make the task of achievement distinctive and difficult. (For instance: "How do I commit myself to achieve, to work hard over time in school, if I cannot predict when or under what circumstances this hard work will be acknowledged and recognized?") She uncovers a rich and powerful African- American philosophy of education, historically forged against such obstacles and capable of addressing them, by reading African-American narratives from Frederick Douglass to Maya Angelou. She carefully critiques the most popular theoretical explanations for group differences in achievement. And she lays out how educators today-in a postcivil rights era-can draw on theory and on the historical power of the African-American philosophy and tradition of education to reorganize the school experience of African-American students. Claude Steele reports stunningly clear empirical psychological evidence that when Black students believe they are being judged as members of a stereotyped group rather than as individuals, they do worse on tests. He finds the mechanism, which he calls "stereotype threat," to be a quite general one, affecting women's performance in mathematics, for instance, where stereotypes about gender operate. He analyzes the subtle psychology of stereotype threat and reflects on the broad implications of his research for education, suggesting techniques-based again on evidence from controlled psychological experiments-that teachers and mentors and schools can use to counter stereotype threat's powerful effect. Asa Hilliard's ends essay, against a variety of false theories and misguided views of African American achievement, and focuses on actual schools and programs and teachers around the country that allow African-American students achieve at high levels, describing what they are like and what makes them work. Young, Gifted, and Black will change the way we think and talk about African American student achievement and will be necessary reading on this topic for years to come.

I LOVE this book. My only criticisms would be that 1) the first chapter read more like a collegiate paper or dissertation. Although extremely informative, I was harder to get through than the other two. 2) There was no summation to finalize the book or to tie each of the author's ideas together. 3) There was no suggestion of what's next... e.g. how do we get such instruction enforced, how do we get the knowledge in the hands of legislators and state boards of education. After reading, I had mixed feelings about the knowledge I had acquired from these varied analyses, as they left us with minimum direction.

Please note that this criticism does not take away from what the book offers. The research alone is worthy of a 5 star review. Personally, the book provides a great deal of well researched information and data for my ongoing project as well as for my edification as a student of the art of pedagogy of African American students.

A necessary text for educators!

Very interesting take on African Americans and education. This book delves into the past, exploring early narratives of education, covers current academic strife, and offers some ideas on what changes need to be made in the world of education. Any urban teacher should read this!

This is just a fantastic book. I could have done without Steele, but Hilliard and Perry were on point in their analysis of education today.

I loved this book. The book gave a good hypothesis as to why African Americans succeeded in education previously but seem to be struggling in the current environment. One thing that was profound to me was that for so long African Americans and education were tied to freedom and now that education is free, what are we going to tie education to. Great Book!!!!

Great book. Anyone who works in education should read this. I was reading it in work and even got some students to read it!
