Public Platitudes and Hidden Tensions: Racial Climates at Predominantly White Liberal Arts Colleges.
McClelland, Katherine E.
Journal of Higher Education, v61 n6 p607-42 Nov-Dec 1990
Theories of intergroup attitudes suggest that the period of relative calm on college campuses was only superficial. Theories are supported by a study of a "quiet" predominantly White liberal arts college. Findings indicate significant differences between Blacks and Whites on a variety of measures of interracial attitudes and interaction patterns. (Author/DB)
