Brown, M. Christopher, II; Hendrickson, Robert M.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v3 n1 p95-113 Jan 1997
The 1992 "United States v. Fordice" case is the judicial precedent for desegregating higher education. Across 19 southern and border states, the desegregation burden has been shifted disproportionately to historically black colleges. This legal and political investigation explores acceptable responses to the desegregation mandate that exist within case law and remedies to preserve black colleges' cultural and institutional integrity.
