RACE RELATIONS AND THE NEW AGENDA FOR HIGHER EDUCATION.
SMITH, CHARLES U.
IT IS URGED THAT HIGHER EDUCATION TEST AND DEMONSTRATE THE "SCIENTIFIC VALIDITY, PEDAGOGICAL SOUNDNESS, AND DEMOCRATIC FEASIBILITY" OF RACIAL DESEGREGATION. NEEDED IS A GREATER AND MORE SYSTEMATIC USE OF SCHOLARLY WRITINGS AND CREATIVE LITERATURE BY AND ABOUT THE NEGRO, TEXTS SHOULD INCLUDE MATERIAL ON THE ROLE OF THE NEGRO IN AMERICAN HISTORY AND SOCIETY. MOREOVER, THERE MIGHT BE SPECIFIC COURSES AND SYSTEMATIC RESEARCH BY TEACHERS AND STUDENTS ON THE NEGRO. COLLEGE STUDENTS SHOULD ALSO BE INCULCATED WITH DEMOCRATIC ATTITUDES THROUGH "SYSTEMATIC ATTACKS ON PREJUDICE." OTHER SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE HOLDING PROFESSIONAL MEETINGS IN INTEGRATED LOCATIONS SO THAT NEGRO COLLEAGUES MAY EASILY PARTICIPATE, AND REMOVING FROM THE INTEGRATED NEGRO STUDENT THE BURDEN OF BEING A REPRESENTATIVE OF ALL NEGROES. IT IS ALSO FELT THAT COMPARING THE STATUS OF AMERICAN NEGROES TO THAT OF AFRICANS IS POINTLESS AND ERRONEOUS, THAT THE SHARING OF COMMON PROBLEMS BY WHITES AND NEGROES IS DESIRABLE, AND THAT EXCHANGING LECTURES AND STUDENT VISITORS ACROSS RACIAL LINES IS AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF COMMUNICATION AND UNDERSTANDING. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN THE "PHI DELTA KAPPAN," VOLUME 47, NUMBER 8, MAY 1965. (NH)
