Synopsis of Upward Bound Winter Conference (New Orleans, Louisiana, January 16-19, 1968).
Lipsky, Michael, Ed.
This document is an edited transcript of speeches and other proceedings from the 1968 New Orleans Upward Bound Conference. Upward Bound is a federally-sponsored program for preparing students from low-income families for admission to college. At the conference representatives from federal agencies and educators with significant institutional responsibilities met to discuss ideas for Upward Bound's response to the urban crisis and issues related to black power. Deliberations focused on a resolution proposed by Negro conferees that all programs with a plurality of black students should be directed by a black project director, preferably male. (LB)
