To be nominated for the Hidden Figures Award you must be considered a foundational scholar and trailblazer who has broken barriers, disrupted the status quo, and opened doors on educational leadership and policy.

"Dr. Dantley's work is foundational for work on equity, transformational leadership, and spirituality. While he has written about Dr. Cornel West's prophetic voice, he has a strong prophetic voice of his own. He speaks truth and does so with eloquence and humility. Back in the day when we had discussants, he would sometimes be assigned to be mine, and he never failed to give a thorough critique of not only my paper, but also all those assigned to him in the session, weaving ideas together into something new. It was marvelous and unique. I never fail to learn from him."
