Since 1960 the number of black students attending Coll has doubled &, for the first time in US history, black students are more likely to matriculate at predominantly white rather than traditionally black institutions. Here, qualitative differences in the experiences & outcomes of blacks who attend white vs black Colls are examined, based on questionnaire data from a national study of 1,600 black students enrolled in 16 public Us — 8 black & 8 white. Black students face a trade-off in higher education: on black campuses they purchase psychological well-being, cultural affinity, & nurturing academic relations at cost of limited physical facilities, fewer resources, & more restricted academic programs; on white campuses they purchase impressive physical plants, rich resources, & more diverse program options at the cost of social alienation, intense academic competition, racial stress, & loss of peace of mind. An 11 point plan for improving black higher education on both black & white campuses is advanced. 1 Table, 1 Photograph. Modified AA
