Summary This book is groundbreaking and unique. The emphasis is on Black faculty based in the US and UK working in predominately White universities. The scholars in this volume are all successful in their chosen fields, some are extremely successful. Yet they have reached the heights of victory in academia against tremendous odds, existing in Integrated but Unequal institutions of higher learning. They have overcome hurdles, the glass ceiling, and other impediments that have a historical reality related fundamentally to their human connections to African heritage. This volume is not for the timid who believe we are in a post-racial world. Rather it is for the realist who comprehends that we still have a long way to go before there is parity among all faculty in higher education, regardless of one's social background, color, gender, or philosophical grounding. -- from Back Cover
