African Americans in Higher Education critically examines African Americans in higher education with an emphasis on the social and philosophical foundations of Africana culture. The organizational structure of the volume is a critical interdisciplinary study, which examines the collection, interpretation, and analysis of quantitative and qualitative data in the field of higher education. Moreover, the intellectual history of Black education as an interdisciplinary body of knowledge postures unconventional methods of examining Africana phenomena. To date, there are not any single-authored or edited volumes of essays that attempt to examine the logical and conceptual ideas of the disciplinary matrix of Africana social and philosophical foundations of African Americans in higher education. This project offers an interdisciplinary lens within the matrix of Africana Studies to locate race and communication in place, space, and time, thus affording readers a compilation of literary, historical, philosophical, and communicative essays that attempt to describe and evaluate the Black experience from an Afrocentric perspective.
