Possible Directions for Black Studies Programs in American Colleges and Universities.
Love, Theresa R.
In order to revitalize the often floundering black studies courses in institutions of higher education, it might be wise to incorporate them in an all encompassing ethnic studies program. This would enable members of various ethnic groups, as well as members of the majority group, to gain greater insight into the problems of their follow citizens and greater respect for their contributions to the general culture. Such a program would have five facets: a self-instructional course for acquainting students with minority group contributions to American culture; a problems-centered course focusing on issues faced by minority groups; separate courses dealing with problems pertinent to members of all of the minority groups; a six-week program in which students live, work, and do research among persons of a different race; and a seminar in which students discuss their six-week visit, report on research, and formulate opinions.
