Black Campus Movement

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

Background from Library of Congress Webcasts site:

"Hundreds of thousands of black students, aided on some campuses by white and Latino students, demanded and protested for a relevant learning experience. At upwards of 1,000 traditionally white and historically black colleges and universities in the United States, black campus activists initiated a range of campus reforms, including the addition of more black students, faculty, administrators, and coaches, and the establishment of black cultural centers and Black Studies courses and programs. Their ultimate aim was to diversify and thus transform higher education. This Black Campus Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s is the subject of this presentation."
