New Books Related To Black Colleges

By Dr. Marybeth Gasman

Recently, there have been several new books published related to historically Black colleges and universities.  I suggest that you check them out.  They include:

Joy is a dynamic professor at the University of Washington, Seattle.  She is also the author of Black Power on Campus: The University of Illinois, 1965-1975.  Joy’s work is thorough and her writing will entice you to want to know more about the history of African Americans in higher education.

Michael Bieze is the Chair of the Art Department at the Marist School in Atlanta, Georgia.  His work on Booker T. Washington, the leader of Tuskegee Institute, is innovative and brave.

Writing with two of his students, Charles Willie includes both an historical and current examination of Black colleges in his newest book.  For a classic on Black colleges, see Charles Willie and Ronald Edmonds’ Black Colleges in America: Challenge, Development, Survival.
