White Students in Black Institutions.
Elam, Ada M.
The author discusses the steady increase in white student enrollment at historically black colleges. These students are generally categorized as: (1) being older; (2) having completed military service; (3) having little interest in student activities; (4) being married; (5) being transfer students; and (6) attending as part-time commuter students. Among the attracting forces are: (1) proximity; (2) convenience; (3) adaptability; (4) program availability; and (5) easy entrance requirements. Apprehensions of the white students, their interpretations of their experiences at black colleges, and the reactions of black students to their fellow white students are presented and analyzed. Particularly interesting are the positive and adverse impact that reverse integration has on black students as well as the possibilities that such an environment can have on the racial attitudes of black and white students.
