The Black Female Professoriate At Howard University, 1926-1968

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



Abstract:

This presentation will discuss the history of Black women faculty at Howard University in Washington, DC from 1926 when Mordecai W. Johnson became to the first Black president until 1968 when the early Black female faculty began to retire. This study is important because it highlights the profound difference in hiring practices of the historically Black college, even the most elite ones in regards to Black women. While the prevailing literature on women’s higher education chronicles the profound difficulty white women experienced in obtaining academic appointments due to sexism, nepotism or custom, Black colleges readily employed Black women academics. Even the all-male Morehouse College employed Black women faculty. In addition, this presentation will discuss the profound impact that these women had on Black women issues nationally and internationally.
