Jesus and the Streets: The Loci of Causality for the Intra-Racial Gender Academic Achievement Gap in Black Urban America and the United Kingdom by Paul C. Mocombe, Carol Tomlin, Victoria Showunmi (Paperback, 2015)
Against John Ogbu's oppositional culture theory and Claude Steele's disidentification hypothesis, this book offers a more appropriate structural Marxian hermeneutical framework for contextualizing, conceptualizing, and evaluating the locus of causality for the black male/female intra-racial gender academic achievement gap in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
