The Adams Case: A Hollow Victory?
Marcus, Laurence R.
Peabody Journal of Education, v59 n1 p37-42 Oct 1981
For more than 40 years, federal courts have attempted to end segregation at the college level. A landmark case, Adams v. Califano (1977), deals with racially dual systems of higher education. Benefits of the case's ruling include: (1) an improvement in educational opportunities available to Black students; and (2) that desegregation should occur on both Black and White campuses. (JN)
