Reviews

The face of American higher education is changing with over 45% of its student body consisting of nontraditional women students. This is the first work that recognizes that reentry college women are not a monolithic group and that Black reentry women have unique concerns as well as those universally shared with all nontraditional women students. This text depicts college through the eyes of a segment of this group, those women existing on the margins of the ivy. The author has chronicled the experiences of eight Black women using their own words to relate their painful, joyous, and often humorous experiences. In addition, the author shares their recommendations and insights regarding the process of schooling. Providing a wonderful analysis of women's issues in the higher education setting, this text also gives an erudite picture of race concerns that still loom in present-day academia. It is of particular interest to those in adult education, women's studies, sociology, and psychology.

"This work would be relevant for several academic audiences including women's studies, African American history and cultural studies, educational foundations, and higher education administration, to name a few. Juanita Johnson-Bailey skillfully wrote about the marginalization of a people in a way that does not marginalize potential readers by overwhelming them with field-based jargon. The book is scholarly, yet accessible." -- Dia Sekayi, The Journal of Negro Education

"… a powerful work that recognizes women's issues in higher education…the text carefully documents diverse stories that provide a colorful tapestry of cutting-edge scholarship on race, class, gender, and the returning adult learner." -- Elice E. Rogers, Adult Education Quarterly, February 2002
