Past, Present, & Future

In the south, racial segregation started to decline in higher education in the 1950’s

The impact in the post-segregation era feeds discussion and debate as educators and politicians wrestle to find clear answers to desegregation and equal opportunity

“Today, leaders at public and private TWIs often find themselves walking on egg shells as they try to strike a balance between the past, present and future of a profound social change, the kind of change about which many segregation-era parents could have only dreamed, the kind that many post-segregation era opponents find offensive.” (Stuart, 2013)
