The Case for Affirmative Action for Blacks in Higher Education.
Fleming, John E.; And Others
In this book, affirmative action within the higher education community is analyzed in terms of black education and job opportunities for blacks. The importance of affirmative action and other strategies for achieving equal opportunity are discussed. The status of black education in America from the time prior to the Civil War to the time prior to affirmative action is examined. The constitutional and legal basis for affirmative action and related Federal programs is described. Policies and practices of implementation by the Federal government are detailed. Four case studies of affirmative action in institutions of higher learning are presented. The current labor market in academia and opportunities for black faculty are analyzed in light of racial discrimination, affirmative action, and public policy. Numerous tables illustrate the findings. A lengthy bibliography is included. (WI)
