What's Educational Leadership without an African-Centered Perspective? Explorations and Extrapolations
Hopson, Rodney K. M.; Hotep, Uhuru; Schneider, Dana L.; Turenne, Ithamar Grace
Urban Education, v45 n6 p777-796 Nov 2010
This article provides an overview of current issues confronting educational leaders dedicated to the fundamentals, curriculum, pedagogy, and practices of African-centered education (ACE) and its evolving nature in the 21st century. By considering and situating African-centered leadership in the discussion of educational leadership generally, and within the expanding and prescient notions of leadership for social justice specifically, the article offers useful connections to educational leadership scholars and practitioners who straddle these interdisciplinary domains of scholarship and action as an opportunity to build from the emerging literature within the extant fields of study and to push urban educational leaders and practitioners to think more critically about the direction of ACE theory, practice, and praxis. (Contains 4 notes.)
