Book description

In Out of the Revolution, Delores P. Aldridge and Carlene Young collect thirtyone of the nation's top scholars to provide a complete reference for understanding the impetus for, the development of, and future considerations for the discipline of _Africana_ studies. Topics addressed include epistemological considerations; humanistic perspectives; the role of bureaucracy and the academic institution; the social, psychological, political, and economic dimensions; the position of black women in the field; and how the discipline has empowered the black student. This invaluable resource for educators and students alike concludes with a look at graduates in Africana studies and their careers and a discussion of the future of the field.
