Overview

This extensively revised edition of the 1991 text Blacks in the White Establishment? adds 15 years to the life stories of African Americans who during the 1960s participated in a program that provided scholarships for disadvantaged people of color to attend prestigious boarding schools. Zweigenhaft (psychology, Guilford College) and Domhoff (UC, Santa Cruz) trace the paths of the scholarship recipients from the ghetto to the elite in an attempt to shed light on the complex intertwining of race, class, and identity for African Americans.
