Abstract

According to the author of this important study, the students who instigated the demand for Black Studies were a “new breed” of Black students. They were different from the White Majority in their manners, speech, style of dressing, and walking. They were also different from their Black predecessors in these same areas. In addition, they were veterans of the Civil Rights Movement; their heroes were Black activists--Ralph Brown, Malcolm X, and Eldridge Cleaver; they had no intention of “escaping the ghetto.”
