Black Studies in Community Colleges. PREP-26.
Lombardi, John; Quimby, Edgar A.
An HEW Publication, report no. 26 in the PREP series (Putting Research into Educational Practice) discusses the timely topic of Black Studies. Previously, a survey of the development and implementation of Black Studies in American community colleges was conducted and reported by the same authors in ED 048 851. This PREP report was adapted from the final report and covers the origins and purposes of black studies; curriculum development, practices, and enrollment; suggestions for impementing a black studies program; and continuing issues, e.g., which term--Negro? Afro-American? Black?--is being used to describe the people, courses, and programs associated with black studies; ethnic origins of instructors; student participation in the selection and retention of instructors; course quality; and control of the educational system. A selected bibliography on black studies and related subjects completes the report. (Author/MN)
