Description:

Reclaiming the highly politicized exhortation to “leave no child behind,” Dr. James Comer here draws from his experience as the creator of the School Development Program to show how public schools can really succeed. “How different our schools and nation would be if every child were a ‘Comer kid.’”—Marian Wright Edelman, President, Children’s Defense Fund “The definitive account of a remarkable—and remarkably successful—long term program for educating all young persons. James Comer is one of the sanest and wisest educators of our time.”—Howard Gardner, author of Changing Minds and Intelligence Reframed “[Comer’s] approach . . . [has] a better track record than any other prescription can claim.”—David L. Kirp, New York Times

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. was born on September 16, 1950, in Keyser, West Virginia. He received a degree in history from Yale University in 1973 and a Ph.D. from Clare College, which is part of the University of Cambridge in 1979. He is a leading scholar of African-American literature, history, and culture. He began working on the Black Periodical Literature Project, which uncovered lost literary works published in 1800s. He rediscovered what is believed to be the first novel published by an African-American in the United States. He republished the 1859 work by Harriet E. Wilson, entitled Our Nig, in 1983. He has written numerous books including Colored People: A Memoir, A Chronology of African-American History, The Future of the Race, Black Literature and Literary Theory, and The Signifying Monkey: Towards a Theory of Afro-American Literary Criticism. In 1991, he became the head of the African-American studies department at Harvard University. He is now the director of the W.E.B. Du Bois Institute for African and African-American Research at the university. He wrote and produced several documentaries including Wonders of the African World, America Beyond the Color Line, and African American Lives. He has also hosted PBS programs such as Wonders of the African World, Black in Latin America, and Finding Your Roots.
