Separate and Unequal: Twenty-First Century Segregation of Historically Black Colleges and Universities through Academic Curriculum
Satterfield, James
College Quarterly, v11 n2 p1-11 Spr 2008
This study identifies discriminatory patterns within the curriculum of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The current federal definition of Historically Black Colleges and Universities indicates that any institution founded prior to 1964, with the expressed purpose of educating Blacks, will be known as a Historically Black College or University. This study, redefines that definition to include any institution that has a predominantly Black student population. In addition, this study provides an understanding of African American higher education colleges and universities by examining the nature of the relationship between their technical core and the dominant social group's normative, regulative, and cognitive categories. The use of an occupational taxonomy provides an explanation of how students who attend African American colleges and universities are being educated. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
