The African American Female Elite: The Early History of African American Women in the Seven Sister Colleges, 1880-1960.
Perkins, Linda M.
Harvard Educational Review, v67 n4 p718-56 Win 1997
Examination of the experiences of over 500 African American women who attended Seven Sisters Colleges shows that some colleges admitted them readily, some only under great pressure. Reflecting the larger society, issues of discrimination in admissions, housing, and financial aid were influenced by and had an effect on the overall struggle for civil rights. (Author/SK)
