The South African higher education system has historically been characterized by racial and gender inequalities inherited from the discriminatory practices of the apartheid era. In response to the demise of apartheid in South Africa, educational institutions are engaged in efforts to redefine their mission to reflect values of the "New South Africa." In order to portray how institutions from divergent historical contexts are addressing the challenge to create new identities Mabokela and King include case studies on South Africa tertiary institutions involved in this transformation.

South Africa continues to be an object of fascination for people everywhere interested in social justice issues, postcolonial studies and critical race theory as manifested by the enormous worldwide attention given to the #RhodesMustFall movement. In this book, Teresa Barnes examines universities’ complex positioning in the apartheid era and argues that tracing the institutional legacies left by pro-apartheid intellectuals are crucial to understanding the fight to transform South African higher education. A work of interpretive social history, this book investigates three historical dynamics in the relationship between the apartheid system and South African higher education. First, it explores how the legitimacy of apartheid was historically reproduced in public higher education. Second, it looks at ways that academics maneuvered through and influenced national and international discourses of political freedom and legitimacy. Third, it explores how and where stubborn tendrils of apartheid-era knowledge production practices survived into and have been combatted during the democratic era in South African universities.

There are disturbing trends in the continued under-representation of African American women in higher education, especially their attainment of post-baccalaureate and graduate degrees. This is an issue of major concern nationally, for the Black community, and for leaders in higher education. The fifteen scholars who contribute to this volume trace the trajectory of Black women in education, with a particular focus on higher education. These scholars combine research and personal narratives to explore educational issues ranging from historical accounts of Black female teachers in the nineteenth century, to the challenges and triumphs of being an activist researcher at the turn of the twenty-first century. The essays in this volume address specific historical, social, cultural, political, and academic issues that affect Black women in the academy, and provide readers with tangible examples of how these scholars have transcended some of the challenges in their pursuit of academic excellence. While these essays do not claim to provide the "magic solution" or a "how-to-guide" to success in higher education, they do raise thought-provoking issues that are critical to the success of Black women in higher education. This book uncovers issues, and proposes remedies, which will be of vital interest for anyone concerned with diversity and equity in higher education. It celebrates emergent scholars of African descent, who have used the challenges they have encountered in their journeys through the academy to create opportunities for success.

African Studies as a field of inquiry has had to combat the insidious interpretations of racist theories used to justify the domination and colonisation of the continent for the past five hundred years. While this has not been the complete history of the field, it has yielded numerous historians who have either misunderstood or deliberately distorted the idea of African agency. Now Jacob Gordon has brought together some of the finest minds in the field to establish the parameters for the future. There have been two general movements in the past one hundred years that have reflected the ideas of Africans toward the doctrine of white supremacy in African Studies and other fields: Negritude and Afrocentricity. Both of these movements have attendants, variances, and oppositions. Nevertheless they may be said to speak to the same problem confronting the African people in a global way and African Studies specifically. This book represents an advance in the conceptualisation of African leadership and political direction. There have always been models of leadership, rooted deeply in the culture, responsive to the historical contexts of the people themselves, that have been used by African leaders. However, what the authors in this volume are committed to is the development of ideas and ideals that will lend continuity to the best traditions of the African people.
