Racism in Higher Education.
Isgar, T., Ed.; Isgar, Susan, Ed.
This anthology contains articles, course and project descriptions and statistics on the magnitude, implications and effect of white racism in the United States. The first article maintains that the myth of the American melting pot has perpetuated racism; the second analyzes bigotry, prejudice, and behavioral and institutional racism; the third presents statistical information describing the relationship of blacks to whites in the US; the fourth is a discussion of the possibilities of black-white workers' movements and black-white students' movements. "Toward a Theory and Practice of Organizing" prepared by the staff of USNSA outlines the anti-racism work to be done by college students on campus. The next paper examines the question of a worker-student alliance and black-white relationships. The seventh paper describes Project TEACH, a program of the University of Wisconsin YMCA designed to help whites recognize the destructive nature of racism and poverty. Intended "as an educational paper for whites doing service work," the next essay considers the cultural aspect of the black revolution. "A Campus Research Guide on Institutional Racism" suggests ways to determine the extent of a college's racism. The next paper describes a broad course on racism offered by Stanford University. A chapter from a book, the last essay deals with racism as part of the quality of American life. A bibliography is provided. (JS)
