Summary: Beginning in the 1830's, public and private higher education institutions established to serve African-Americans operated in Pennsylvania and Ohio, the Border States, and the states of the old Confederacy. Until recently the vast majority of people of African descent who received post-secondary education in the United States did so in historically black institutions. Spurred on by financial and accreditation issues, litigation to assure compliance with court decisions, equal higher education opportunity for all citizens, and the role of race in admissions decisions, interest in the role, accomplishments, and future of Historically Black colleges and universities has been renewed. This volume touches upon these issues.
Notes: "The papers in this special book grow out of a session held at the annual meeting of the National Economic Association"--Introduction.
