Ethnic Minorities and Telecommunications.
Hayes-Hull, Marion
Developments in communications technology should become a major concern of minorities (native Americans and Americans of African, Asian, and Hispanic racial or ethnic origin). Although minorities are disillusioned with broadcast television because television decision makers have not been sensitive to minority needs, they have shown interest recently in cable television as well as in other communication technologies--satellites, computers, fibre optics, and lasers. In order to become involved in communications on the research and policy making levels, students must be educated in communication technology, and black colleges should recognize that telecommunications can lead to a new way of generating revenue while leading to economic and community development.
