Educational Imperative; The Negro in the Changing South. CSLEA Notes and Essays on Education for Adults, No. 37.
Goldman, Freda H., Ed.
This publication summarizes an institute sponsored by the Negro College Committee on Adult Education, which was an outgrowth of a 1958 meeting of presidents and deans of Negro Colleges in the South held in Chicago to examine what Southern Negro colleges should be doing in continuing and community education. Sponsored partly in cooperation with the Association of Colleges and Secondary schools and the Center for the Study of Liberal Education for Adults, the 12-day institute dealt with the theme "The Negro College in the Changing South" with the purpose of (1) studying major economic, political, and social developments over the past several years in order to understand the meaning of the changes that are occuring and to arrive at a definition of the emerging new setting; and, (2) analyzing the setting of the Negro colleges in this changing milieu, especially in relation to the education of adults. The papers suggest the need for a new posture for these colleges, a new sense of purpose and direction, and a new self-concept to match the new responsibility. The institute was attended by 28 faculty members from 17 institutions in the South. (se)
