Faculty Book Review:"Cultural Collision and Collusion"

Dr. Carlos McCray’s (Associate Professor of Educational Leadership, Administration & Policy) recently published Cultural Collision and Collusion: Reflections on Hip-Hop Culture, Values, and Schools has been reviewed by the Teacher’s College Record:

“Beachum and McCray’s (2011) book…underscores the dire plight of urban youth, particularly African-American males, today.  They bring together a wide variety of scholarship to theorize new ways in which this population continues to be under-served/disserved by the educational system and explore conflicts between youth and adult culture in American schools…  Some of the greatest strengths in this book are the questions and challenges it poses for educators and those who work with Black youth.  It provides both a historical and societal context for the myriad of issues, tensions, and injustices that plague this group.”
