"Time Is Not on Our Side": Cultural vs. Structural Explanations of Black American Women Students' Achievement in the Urban, Nonelite University.
Arnold, Faye W.
Urban Review, v25 n3 p199-220 Sep 1993
Using interview data from 42 working, lower- and underclass African-American female college students, this article challenges the primacy of the cultural argument that educational failure of African-American women is primarily the result of their adherence to oppositional cultural forms and a preindustrial sense of time that inhibits success in higher education.
