Review quote

"Mosley and Hargrove have exposed some important truths about higher education in their compelling new book. Their research is thorough, their anecdotes are instructive and their insight is invaluable to anyone who is attempting to understand or improve the success of women and people of color in the college setting. Their understanding of the minority experience is particularly striking." --Lawrence Otis Graham, Esq., author of Our Kind of People: Inside America's Black Upper Class and Member of the Club: Life in a Racially Polarized World
