Finally, the inestimable attainments of Dr. Andrew Billingsley are applauded in this long overdue festshrift by those who were mentored, taught and influenced by him. Billingsley is considered the seminal scholar on the sociology of the Black family. His Black Families in White America remains a classic and a standard reference.

Dr. Billingsley has been noted for other groundbreaking achievements, serving as university president at Morgan State University; university administrator at Berkeley, Howard, University of Maryland, and the University of South Carolina.

Additionally, Billingsley has received acclaim and numerous awards from professional and academic organizations.  Andrew Billingsley, Scholar and Institution Builder rewards us with the first published collection of individual reminders about Billingsley’s scholarly accomplishments and his unique leadership style. For those who are aware of his achievements, and for those who are not, this anthology is a fresh, grand tribute of insights about a man whose devotion to Black community well-being has marked his entire career.

Dr. Billingsley and his daughter Bonita sharing their joy about the release of the new book.
