Beginning with an overview of the educational experiences of Louis Farrakhan, the book moves through educational philosophy, theoretical constructs in human development, and critical educational theory. It also situates the study of Islam in the context of human development and multicultural education. Moreover, it has a chapter devoted to critique of who defines achievement and explores critical educational theory through the canons of Afrocentric education, multicultural education, and critical pedagogy.
Farrakhan and Education is different from other texts on education. It recognizes and thoroughly discusses a leader whose work has long gone unrecognized for the major contribution to the study of education. The book is well researched and successfully blends this research with insights gained through years of personal reflection.
