The Higher Education of Blacks in the United States.
Pifer, Alan
This lecture discusses the higher education of blacks in the United States. The first part describes historically the development of black higher education by chronological periods up to approximately 1965. The second section discusses the present era in terms of several major current issues. Some of the social, legal, and political aspects of race relations generally that have formed the larger context within which higher education for blacks has developed are sketched. A short personal appraisal of what the entire experience of black higher education seems to add up to is included. (Author/MJM)
