Abstract

History denotes a small number of African-Americans have held leadership roles in educational public and private school systems across the country. However, during the last decade black women have pioneered and forged new frontiers as educational as leaders within urban schools. Because of these contributions, more should be known regarding the visions that motivate such women, specifically as it relates to urban leadership and teaching. This phenomenological study examines the visions of African-American women urban teacher leaders who seek administration within urban schools early in their careers and also discovers how others may be so encouraged.
