Book Description:

In 1960, 65 percent of African American college students attended historically black colleges. By the 1970s, that number dropped to 34 percent. In 1996, just 20 percent of black students attended America's 103 historically black colleges. Though vital when they began in the mid-1800s, are these black colleges still necessary?
