From the Publisher
"This is an excellent primary source for undergraduates to use in beginning research. . . . Summing Up: Highly recommended."
"Historically Black Colleges and Universities: An Encyclopedia is a book for everyone and makes an invaluable contribution to literature that examines HBCUs. In a time of budgetary crises in higher education, this book is necessary, particularly for policymakers and the general public to better understand the need for support of such schools. Furthermore, this book serves scholars well as a current, comprehensive publication of the study of HBCUs.
Scholars, joumalists, and policymakers (Kimbrough, 2011) have raised the question: Why do we still need HBCUs? This comprehensive and thoughtful encyclopedia answers the question well. HBCUs are not only necessary but also valuable in shaping the narrative of African American history in the way that previous landmark decisions and events have done."
