Black Hands in the Biscuits- Not in the Classrooms

Unveiling Hope in a Struggle for Brown’s Promise

Sherick A. Hughes

This book won the 2007 AESA (American Educational Studies Association) Critics Choice Award.

From «Nigger, Nigger, Black as Tar, Won’t Go to Heaven in a Motor Car» to «They’re Not Ready Yet,» this book breathes life into an often-abandoned, rural Black family story. This book illuminates a struggle and hope for education in Southern desegregated grade schools and illustrates school experiences from multiple generations within three Black families as it introduces Black family pedagogy «of roots and wings» – keys to survival and success at a crossroads of law, tradition, and transition. Black Hands in the Biscuits Not in the Classrooms is a must read for lifelong students of education, sociology, public policy, and history.

The Evolving Significance of Race

Living, Learning, and Teaching

Sherick A. Hughes and Theodora Regina Berry

This book won the 2014 AESA (American Educational Studies Association) Critics Choice Award.

We are living, learning, and teaching by questioning how to address race in a society that consistently prefers to see itself as colorblind, a society claiming to seek a «post-racial» existence. This edited volume offers evidence of the evolving significance of race from a diverse group of male and female contributors selfidentifying as Black, Latino, Asian, White, Gay, Lesbian, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim. Our attempts to provide every child and adult learner with what they need – equity – to make the most of their educational experiences – excellence – are still consciously and unconsciously thwarted by the ingrained nature of racism in our society. This point becomes obvious when we begin teaching those audiences that represent diverse lived experiences of race about the changing significance of race and how to develop a more critical, reflexive lens focused upon the politics of race. This book invites readers to co-construct and implement a critical race pedagogy that reflects both an acknowledgment of the evolving significance of race and opportunities for hope via education.
