Activism and Disciplinary Suspensions / Expulsions at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. A Phenomenological Study of the Black Student Sit-In Movement, 1960-1962
2013 0-7734-4347-9
Examines the emergence of Radical African American Student Voices in the 1960s civil rights struggles. Focusing on personal stories of African American college students expelled or suspended from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) the work examines their vibrant Sit-In Movement activism that resulted in exposing the world to the nation’s complicity in endorsing the South’s archaic notions that black citizens had no rights that were equal to those enjoyed by Whites. The birth of the Southern Black Student Sit-In Movement eventually engaged thousands of students attending many of the South’s land-grant and private HBCUs, becoming the major vehicle for students en masse to demonstrate their opposition to the South’s deep-seated, racist Jim Crow laws.
