People of Color in Predominantly White Institutions


Date of this Version

November 2003


The globalization of hip-hop culture has created opportunities and challenges for students of color attending predominately White institutions. Overexposure to urban culture through music, fashion, movies, etc. combined with limited interaction with urban youth has created volatile and in some cases hostile environments on predominately White campuses. This workshop examines what happens when myth and reality meet in the halls of academia.
