The black problem in America today involves a moral issue with basic judicial, educational, political, and social overtones. The quality of life for black Americans is intertwined with the issue of race relations. This scholarly review cites events, statistics, articles and specific court cases in an attempt to emphasize the importance of the critical period 1975-2000 for blacks and black colleges. A summary statement by the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education on the impact of desegregation in the lives of black Americans is presented. Various court litigation decisions concerning equal educational opportunity for blacks are reviewed. The enrollment trends of black youth are analyzed. Community and parental reactions to achievement of quality education for their children are cited. Various publications concerning the educational quality and life of blacks and black colleges are mentioned. The need for diverse research studies to provide information concerning the black experience in both black and white colleges is summarized. It is suggested that research is needed to provide data for intelligent policy decisions and innovations which can benefit black Americans from now into the 21st century. (JP)
