A Long Way to Go: Conversations about Race by African American Faculty and Graduate Students highlights the experiences and coping strategies of faculty members and graduate students pursuing Ph.D.s who have successfully navigated the academy despite hostile environments and hurdles that cause many to avoid or leave the academy. African American students and faculty often face problems such as isolation within a white environment, the misinterpretation of confidence as aggressiveness, and the need to work twice as hard as white peers in order to be taken seriously in their chosen careers. This book will assist both doctoral students and junior faculty in successfully completing the graduate school experience and transitioning into tenure-track positions, and will be of great interest to all higher education faculty and administrators who must address the complex issues of diversity in recruiting and retaining graduate students and faculty.


The Editor: Darrell Cleveland is currently Assistant Professor in the School of Education at New Jersey City University in New Jersey. He earned his Ph.D. in education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, his Ms.Ed in elementary education from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, and his B.A. in African American studies from Temple University in Philadelphia. He has been a middle school teacher in Philadelphia and worked with at-risk youth and individuals with mental illness and drug and alcohol addictions. Dr. Cleveland's areas of research interest include beginning teachers, out-of-field teaching, teacher shortage and teacher attrition, the state of black education, diversity and inclusion, and minorities in higher education.

"Darrell Cleveland's 'A Long Way to Go' is a timely and thought-provoking collection of readings that places a much-needed focus on the experiences of African Americans in higher education. The chapters capture the struggles and accomplishments of African American graduate students and faculty and speak to contemporary issues that affect this group at a critical time for African Americans in higher education. As African American graduate students and faculty continue to bring their gifts and talents to academia, this book will serve as a 'beacon of light' on resilience, survival, and excellence." (Linda C. Tillman, Associate Professor, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan)
"'A Long Way to Go: Conversations About Race by African American Faculty and Graduate Students' proposes topics of discussion that are critical to higher education. The subtopics proposed for the book are very enlightening, and the authors are individuals who are not only knowledgeable on the subtopics but who have experienced what they are writing about. The book would be educational for everyone and very helpful for African Americans aspiring to become college students and faculty members. A book on this topic would be very powerful and of deep interest to many." (Carol L. Patitu, Associate Professor, Buffalo State University, Buffalo, New York)
