Narrating the realities of teacher burnout, the reception of a Black intelligentsia, and HIV awareness in local communities, Black Americans in Higher Education, the eighth volume of Africana Studies, explores higher education across the United States as inextricably related to contemporary issues facing African Americans.

Loudd, Derek Wilson, DaVonte Lyons, Jacqueline Gerard, Tanisha Stanford, Lanetta Dickens, Brittany C. Slatton, and James L. Conyers, Jr., this collection presents a deeper, cross-cultural understanding of higher education that conveys the many ways its intersections can promote the agency of Black Americans.
