The Historically Black College as Social Contract, Social Capital, and Social Equalizer.
Brown, M. Christopher, II; Davis, James Earl
Peabody Journal of Education, v76 n1 p31-49 2001
Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) enjoy a unique social contract in the national history, acting as social agencies for society by providing equal educational opportunity and attainment for all students. This social contract brokered between the nation and African Americans is realized through social capital or distribution and reproduction of social networks and resources provided by HBCUs.
