Black College Student's Survival Guide.
This guide to college for the black student explores how to choose a college, how to have a successful academic and social college career, and how to find a job after college. The perspective is that of an African American Christian educator with a great deal of experience with black youth. It is noted that retention in college is at only 32% for the African American community, and why this occurs is discussed. The issues reviewed in these chapters have been the subjects of speeches given at many college campuses. The following chapters are included: (1) "Why Are You Here?"; (2) "Selecting a College"; (3) "Habits and Discipline"; (4) "Retention"; (5) "Greek Life"; (6) "The Power, Passion, and Pain of Black Love"; (7) "DuBois' Talented Tenth"; and (8) "Life after College."
