A Simmering Controversy: African American Students and Diversity at Predominantly White Campuses.
Davis, Wanda M.; Richbart, Christopher A.
National Association of Student Affairs Professionals Journal, v1 n1 p85-92 Win 1998
Suggests that educators focus on the experience of African American students attending predominantly white institutions in an attempt to identify and address the underlying thinking which supports racism. Describes studies on how Caucasian students perceive their African American peers and argues that campus agendas for diversity can succeed, but that more is needed than the creation of policies that allow for open access.
