The Widening Racial Gap in American Higher Education.
Hatch, Laurie Russell; Mommsen, Kent
Journal of Black Studies, v14 n4 p457-76 Jun 1984
Differentials in educational attainment between Blacks and Whites from 1940 to 1977 were analyzed in 1979, and a widening racial gap and a widening sex gap among Whites were detected. A 1984 postscript critiques this analysis but stands by the finding of an increasing racial gap in higher education. (CMG)
