Developing the Black Community to Save Black Colleges. Report of the Second Black Colleges and Community Development Conference (Chicago, Illinois, September 19-21, 1973).
Dobbins, Cheryl J.
The theme of the TACTICS (Technical Assistance Consortium to Improve College Services) conference "Developing the Black Community to Save Black Colleges" was most appropriate, since the consciousness of the nation is presently being awakened to the plight of black collges, especially the public institutions. The conference dealt with how the black community and its intellectual component-the black institution of higher learning-can should, and must become partners in pressing for positive change. The content of this report can be briefly summarized as follows: (1) status/progress reports of the consortial units; (2) the black colleges responding to community needs by working with elected officials; (3) consortial unit sessions focusing on innovative activities in problematic community areas; and (4) implementation and strategy development. Appendices include the conference program, the introductory speakers' remarks, reports concerning the development of the black community to save black colleges, a list of conference participants, and a report on black colleges and cable television.
