Being gifted and talented and also African American makes children
double minorities, and the issues they face can be different
from those faced by most other gifted children. This book provides helpful
insights and guidelines for the parenting and education of Black gifted
children. In addition to the challenges that are frequently experienced
by many gifted children, such as underachievement and idealism,
Black gifted children often must also deal with issues like
discrimination and low expectations of them. Dr. Joy Davis offers
practical information based on her personal experience as a parent and a gifted
education professional. Several appendices in the back of the book provide
useful resources for minority gifted students, as well as
reading lists that will help empower these children and their parents. This book
will help both African American parents and the educators who work with these
bright, talented children.
