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



Abstract:

The Black Campus Movement was the struggle of newly arrived and organized groups of Black students who in the late 1960s and early 1970s demanded and sometimes demonstrated for a series of reforms on campuses across America. Many of the present concepts and manifestations of diversity and multiculturalism like African American Studies and also the sheer presence of Black students, faculty, administrators, staff and coaches on campuses across American emerged out of this struggle. The peak of this struggle was the academic year of 1968-1969, which was 40 years ago. During this academic year, Black college students did more organizing, demanding, and demonstrating than any other year before or since. With the famous movements at Cornell University and San Francisco State College and other unheralded efforts of Black students, this academic year can be classified as the year Black students forced diversity on the academy. In this presentation, the causes, events, and effects of this ground-breaking academic year will be examined.
