Blacks in Research: How Shall We Be Portrayed?
Fenwick, Leslie T.
Urban Education, v51 n6 p587-599 Jul 2016
A version of this article, "Blacks in Research? How Shall We Be Portrayed?", was delivered by the author as the 2013 W. E. B. Du Bois Distinguished Lecture to the annual conference of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Blacks in Education Special Interest Group (Black SIG). This article examines the portrayal of Blacks in research and urges a renaissance among Black intellectuals, specifically calling for Black and progressive other scholars to lead a national movement to present rarely highlighted positive data and research findings about the Black condition--especially those which challenge persistent negative reports and racist notions about Black people.
