"The Brown Decision: Ideals and Institutional Practice in Conflict"

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

As a social and cultural historian with a teaching career that spans nearly twelve years at the collegiate level, I've been drawn to notions of space and place for black students at predominantly white institutions (PWIs)in the South since I began my doctoral studies nearly two years ago. The Brown decision connects to this research interest and becomes the centerpiece of this paper. Both ideally and historically, this decision represents access for African American students at all levels of the educational spectrum. From our 21st century lens, we look back at the experiences of the black student within a 19th and 20th century framework as we hope to see the progression and matriculation of this population of student within the halls of academia at all levels. In this paper I argue that we have not witnessed this progression and matriculation to its fullest extent because of the objectification and commodification of the black student. These factors were evident before the passage of Brown - which necessitated its inception and insertion into our legal and institutional landscape. Since its passage, we can still see vestiges of the objectification and commodification of the black student among those outside and within the black community. Until we recognize and rectify these realities, the "Crisis of Black Education" will continue.
