Black Studies: Paradox with a Promise
Type of Work
From March 18th-21st 1975, the first Black Studies program was held at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Within the context of the Civil Rights Movement, a growing recognition of the need for the study of African-American world experience spurred student movements on several campuses for a more inclusive educational experience. The Black Studies movement (1968-1969) and the Black University concept (late 1960s) helped create more African & African diaspora-centered courses on various campuses. In April 1968, a national conference for Black teachers took place. The booklet passes out was printed on green card stock with ink. Within the guide there are hymns and an itinerary for each day.
