Negro History and Culture. Final Technical Report on the EPDA Institute.
University of Southwestern Louisiana, Lafayette.
The purpose of the institute was: 1) to improve the teaching of Negro students; 2) to prepare Negro and white teachers to assume duties in predominately Negro schools; 3) to meliorate racial prejudice, to provide for Negroes to develop healthy self-images; 4) to prepare educators to deal with problems of race relations; and, 5) to prepare teachers to teach courses containing a broad spectrum of Negro culture. Self-evaluation indicated that the institute was felt to have accomplished these goals. Especially noted was the opportunity for change of attitudes which attendance of the institute encourages.
