Black Studies in the Community College.
A questionnaire, college catalogs, other institutional publications, the national media, and personal statements of educators were among the tools used in this examination of community college efforts to adopt Black Studies programs. The major findings were: (1) Black Studies courses are widespread; (2) enrollments are adequate; (3) enrollments are mainly of black students, with only a few non-blacks; (4) most of the instructors are black; (5) control of the programs is mainly by blacks. It was also found the Black Studies programs have influenced other minority or ethnic studies programs and that regular course offerings are being affected by them. This monograph covers the origins of the programs, the courses and curriculums, the curriculum development, the usage of the terms Negro, Afro-American, and Black, continuing issues, and the future of Black Studies. A more exhaustive study is recommended to distinguish between promising and unpromising practices of present institutional policy. (HH)
