Harper, S. R., & Gasman, M. (2008). Consequences of conservatism: Black male undergraduates and the politics of historically black colleges and universities. The Journal of Negro Education [H.W. Wilson – EDUC], 77(4), 336.
Black male students’ characterization of, reaction to, and understanding of conservative environmental politics prevailing at historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) were examined. Data were obtained from interviews with 76 undergraduate Black male students from 12 HBCUs that participated in the National Black Male College Achievement Study. Documents from 103 HBCUs were also analyzed to gain more insights into the political press of the institutions. Findings demonstrated the prevalence of conservatism in the areas of sexuality and sexual orientation, student self-presentation and expression, and the inferior status of students beneath faculty and administrators.
