Educational Reconstruction received several mentions in the news. The work received a mention in the “On the Bookshelf” section of the Franklin and Marshall Magazine. In addition, the author was profiled alongside her father, an alumnus, in the “Legacy and Loyalty” section of the Spring 2016 issue.

In recognition of the dynamic work being done by black women scholars, Sowande’ Mustakeem and Keisha N. Blain have compiled a list of 70 new and forthcoming books on a range of topics from the era of slavery to the post-Civil Rights era. Educational Reconstruction’s inclusion was apart of an expansion of Sowande’ Mustakeem’s original #TheHistorySoundtable list of 40 key works by black women scholars.
It is truly an honor to have the book recognized in the listing of new and forthcoming books. Collectively, as #Thehistorysoundtable II: 70 Recent History Books By Black Women argues, the selected works “shed light on how black women scholars are shaping and defining the fields of United States history, African history, and African Diaspora History. We encourage educators to incorporate these works into their syllabi for fall courses, and invite these scholars to their campuses to share their exciting research with colleagues and students.” For the full article, see http://www.aaihs.org/thehistorysoundtable-ii-70-recent-history-books-by-black-women/.
Many thanks to the editors of the Franklin and Marshall Magazine, Sowande’ Mustakeem, Keisha N. Blain, and the AAIHS (African American Intellectual History Society).
