The New Breed- Black Activists.
McManus, Luther M., Jr.; Cunningham, James J.
This paper takes the position that if higher education is to serve the needs of black students, there must be a complete understanding of, and receptivity to, the needs of those students as they see them, and to the ways in which these needs can be met. University or college administrators must recognize the search for identity among black students as real and vital, that the black students need their Afro-American Societies and their Black Student Unions. It is recommended that black students be provided with facilities, advisors, financial support, and the opportunity to have meaningful dialogue with both faculty and administration. Furthermore, it is felt they need an education more suited to their needs and professors capable of teaching material relevant to blacks. The author feels that black students cannot be categorized with "white revolutionaries," because, unlike them, the black student desires to participate constructively to solve the many problems facing his community and the nation.
