A Panorama of the Desegregation of Historically Black Public Colleges.
Stewart, Dorothy Granberry
The civil rights struggle has created different perspectives on the place and role of black public colleges in American education today. It has been recommended that these schools, following the public school example, be absorbed or "engulfed" by the white educational structure. This recommendation reinforces the view that black institutions are, per se, inferior. However, black colleges are valuable in assuring blacks continued access to all aspects of higher education and recognition of the black perspective in the American mainstream. If these schools are to be desegregated, that process must be accomplished by a sensitivity to the educational needs and social aims of the black community. (Author/WP)
