Brothers of the Academy: Up and Coming Black Scholars Earning Our Way in Higher Education.
Jones, Lee, Ed.

Part 2, "Navigating the Academy," focuses on black male psychology; African American men in various academic disciplines, preparing a university for diversity; the role of mentoring, the impact of American social systems on African American men; managing family and career; and working toward advanced degrees. Part 3, "Featured Scholarship," examines ancient Egyptian family and social organization, health counseling for black men; the personal costs of being a black male in academe; black male images in athletics; black male leadership; empowering black children; and the impact of the marketplace on ethnic minorities, business, and the government.
