Description


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.
