Against the Odds: Academic and Professional Success after ADHD
By: Dr. Lamont Holloman
About the Book
Against the Odds: Academic and Professional Success after ADHD follows Dr. Lamont Holloman's life as an African American male with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and details how he overcame significant educational and personal challenges as an adolescent, young adult, and adult. In addition, as the book follows Dr. Holloman through his academic and professional journey, it will help inform readers of the marginalization of African American men with ADHD. Existing research paints a negative picture of African American males with ADHD. Dr. Holloman's work is a self-reflection that explores his subjective personal experiences and connects his story to cultural and social meanings, giving the reader a more hopeful image of what can be achieved academically and professionally. What the author hopes readers will take away from his book is that regardless of how your life path starts, how society labels you, and what the school system tells you, you can succeed academically and forge your own future.
