[Book Release] Black Intellectual Thought in Education: The Missing Traditions of Anna Julia Cooper, Carter G. Woodson, and Alain Leroy Locke

Carl A. Grant, Keffrelyn D. Brown and Anthony L. Brown recently published
the book, Black Intellectual Thought in Education: The Missing Traditions
of Anna Julia Cooper, Carter G. Woodson, and Alain Leroy Locke.

This book celebrates the exceptional academic contributions of
African-American education scholars Anna Julia Cooper, Carter G. Woodson,
and Alain Leroy Locke to the causes of social science, education, and
democracy in America. By focusing on the lives and projects of these three
figures specifically, it offers a powerful counter-narrative to the
dominant, established discourse in education and critical social
theory–helping to better serve the population that critical theory seeks
to advocate. Rather than attempting to rescue a few African American
scholars from obscurity or marginalization, this powerful volume instead
highlights ideas that must be probed and critically examined in order to
deal with prevailing contemporary educational issues. Cooper, Woodson, and
Lockes history of engagement with race, democracy, education, gender and
life is a dynamic, demanding, and authentic narrative for those engaged
with these important issues.
