Black Studies in the Community Colleges: A Survey. Final Report.
Lombardi, John; Quimby, Edgar A.
This survey was prompted by the need to examine the community colleges in their attempts to adopt Black Studies programs as a result of the national emergence of Black Studies in 4-year colleges and universities. Official documents, personal statements from educators, and student opinion, together with a questionnaire, periodicals, newspapers, and bibliographic search of the literature make up the sources on which this survey is based. The major findings of the survey are: (1) Black Studies courses are widespread, (2) enrollments are adequate, (3) enrollments consist of black students with a sprinkling of non-blacks, (4) instructors are predominantly black, and (5) control of the Black Studies programs is in the hands of the blacks. This report of the survey includes a complete discussion of the origins of Black Studies, curriculum development practices and enrollment, and continuing issues. Useful references for those interested in implementing a Black Studies program are listed in the bibliography. (Author/CA)
