Summary

In this volume the editors incorporate the experiences of African Americans into the discourse on moral-development theory and moral education. By citing historical developments from the days of slavery to the present, the authors provide a framework through which one can interpret the way morality has been cultivated amongst Black minorities. Presenting intriguing essays of well-known African American scholars, the editors discuss both the psychology of moral formation among African American children, adolescents, and adults, and the practical implications of this knowledge.
