Phillips, W.M., Jr.; Blumberg, Rhoda L.
Integrated Education, v20 n1-2 p34-39 Jan-Apr 1982
Examines tokenism as a neglected concept in race relations theory; suggests that tokenism is the dominant group's mechanism for accommodating minority group pressure for change, while retaining its dominance; discusses dilemmas of the token role; and describes an ideal of the token role, especially in the university, as a guide for further study.
