  1. Bullies in the Ivory Tower: An African American Woman’s Fight for Educational Justice and a PHD, written by Agnes L. Scott. (This book is a story based on my pursuit of a doctoral degree at the University of Toledo. The story takes place in a Nashville church as I recollect the injustices that I experienced in university life. The injustices are interwoven with a Sunday morning service at Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, located on 12th Avenue South. The book is intended to start a dialogue among students, university leaders, professors, administrators, policy makers, and subject matter experts regarding a university’s role in supporting the educational goals of its students.) The book is being sold as a fundraiser for NeighborH.O.O.D. All royalties to the author are forfeited. Find out more.
