Never before in American history have we seen the number of African Americans teaching at Christian Colleges as we see today. Black Scholars in White Space highlights the recent research and scholarly contributions to various academic disciplines by some of America's history-making African American scholars working in Christian Higher Education. Many are the first African Americans or only African Americans teaching at their respective institutions. Moreover, never before have this many African American female scholars in Christian Higher Education had their research presented in a single, cross-disciplinary volume. The scholars in this book, spanning the humanities and social sciences, examine the issues in public policy, church/state relations, health care, women's issues in higher education, theological anthropology, affirmative action, and black history that need to be addressed in America as we move forward in the 21st century. For these reasons and more Black Scholars in White Space offers timely and historic contributions to the discourse about making the black community a place where men and women thrive and make contributions to the common good. ""Bradley has gathered a community of scholars adept in the analysis of and the timely reflection on the lack of African American presence, females in particular, even in the Christian academy. An impressive array of topics are pursued to demonstrate diverse and pervasive challenges. The authors attempt to show that though the challenges are formidable, they are not insurmountable."" --Bruce Fields, Associate Professor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL ""Black Scholars in White Space presents black scholarly voices from Christian academe applying their expertise to ongoing realities of the varied black experience in the United States. Challenging and engaging, each chapter's disciplinary lens encourages a reframed examination of familiar concerns that lead to intellectually stretching potential solutions. With this book, Bradley has facilitated a conversation that leaves the reader with thought-provoking questions instead of status quo answers--a true learning experience."" --Jamie Y.
