SOME IMPRESSIONS OF FAIR HARVARD'S BLACKS.
SHELTON, FLORENCE
THE "COLLEGE EXPERIENCE" OF 15 NEGRO MEN MATRICULATING AT HARVARD DURING 1963-64 WAS REPORTED. THE RESEARCHER INTERVIEWED THE MEN, ELICITING EXPRESSIONS OF WHAT IT MEANT, SOCIALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY, TO BE A NEGRO AT AN IVY LEAGUE COLLEGE. INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES IN SUCH AREAS AS FAMILY BACKGROUND, SELF-CONCEPT, REFERENCE GROUPS, ASPIRATIONS, AND PERSONALITY WERE FOUND TO YIELD DIFFERING WAYS OF ORIENTATION IN THE CULTURE OF HARVARD COLLEGE. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM THE "HARVARD JOURNAL OF NEGRO AFFAIRS," VOLUME 1, NUMBER 2, 1965. (TC)
