Race, Gender and Educational Desire Why Black Women Succeed and Fail By Heidi Safia Mirza

This book concentrates on the emotional and social consequences of gender differences as well as racial division which are experienced by Black and other ethnic female individuals within the educational environment. It also looks at the intersections of race and gender within this sector.

In addition to this, commentators have debated the reasons behind endemic gender and race inequalities within academia as well as looking at alternative power of a black feminist context in enlightening the interconnections among race and gender and procedures of inequality in an educational environment.
Lastly, this book argues that black female’s educational desire for themselves and their off- springs exemplifies a feminist prospective for a multicultural future.
