Instilling the Dream of Higher Education in African American Women at a Southern HBCU
Dotremon, Delilah
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v4 n2 p25-37 Dec 2009
This article examines sociological variables associated with 160 Black university women to learn what factors propelled them to a university career. The findings of this study suggest that mothers with a university degree or some collegiate exposure were instrumental in influencing their daughters to attend college, in spite of their socioeconomic status. Cultural diversity in higher education may only be achieved when we learn the source of motivation and inspiration for young minority women and replicate those secret ingredients.
