disappointing!!
21 February 2018 | by evastaitz-10474See all my reviews

There was so much more important info that was omitted. how uneven standards were to enter many hbcu's no entrance exams, no sat score to contend with even up until the late 1960's. that had to impact the intellectual life of students. how many prof.'s were properly credentialed [masters, doctorates required in subject matter being taught? perhaps someone else will properly complete the history of historic black colleges and universities.
