Abstract

The article reflects on the challenges posed to researchers to close the achievement gap between African American students and their white counterparts in mathematics and science education. It cited several issues that need to be addressed and solved to be able to uplift and motivate African American students to strive, achieve excellence and pursue careers in the mathematics and sciences. The issues cited are historical awareness of the education of African Americans, teacher expectations and beliefs, cultural awareness, testing, equity in the classroom and career selections.
