The Maroon Within Us (Paperback)
Product Descriptionby Asa G. Hilliard, III
Written to provide strategies for the collective development of Black people, Hilliard's fifteen essays address issues essential for socialization, self-determination, and cultural identity. Within the context of "community socialization," Hilliard examines the economic, educational, spiritual, and political aspects of the African American reality. Hilliard's insight is fresh and ripe with solutions to many of the problems that affect Black people in America. Asa G. Hilliard, II, was the Fuller E. Callway Professor of Urban Education at Georgia State University. As an educator, psychologist, and historian, Dr. Hilliard consulted with leading school districts, universities, government agencies, and private corporations on valid assessment, curriculum equity, and teacher training. Several of his programs in pluralistic curriculum assessments and valid teaching have become national models.
