Escaping The Master’S House: Claudia Jones & The Black Marxist Feminist Tradition, 2017 Trinity College, Hartford Connecticut
Escaping The Master’S House: Claudia Jones & The Black Marxist Feminist Tradition, Camryn S. Clarke
Senior Theses and Projects
In this Senior Project, I will argue that the path to liberation is through the discourse of Black Marxist Feminism as articulated by Caribbean political activist, Claudia Jones. The intersectional nature of such a discourse will encompass all who are oppressed —Black people, women, and workers. I explore what it means to be Black through the lens of Marcus Garvey, to be Woman through the lens of Monique Wittig, and to be a Worker through the lens of Karl Marx in order to understand Claudia Jones’ standpoint on what it means to be at the intersection of all three. The ...

Anger Matters: Black Female Student Alienation At Predominantly White Institutions, 2017 McDaniel College
Anger Matters: Black Female Student Alienation At Predominantly White Institutions, Shandria Robertson, Lauren Dundes
Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice
Black female college students at predominantly white institutions commonly experience substantial alienation that impedes their social integration and sense of wellbeing. To probe the source of their isolation, we examine whether race and gender predict reactions to one of the most contentious contemporary social issues: police shootings of unarmed Black individuals. A random sample of 238 Black and white students surveyed at a small private liberal arts Mid-Atlantic college revealed that significantly more Black women felt very angry, depressed, vulnerable and distrustful of police compared to white males and females as well as Black males. We explore factors that could ...
Diversity: Words, Meaning And Race At Predominantly White, Independent Schools, 2017 Caldwell University
Diversity: Words, Meaning And Race At Predominantly White, Independent Schools, Bonnie French
Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice
This paper investigates the current meaning of “Diversity” in elite, predominantly white, independent schools in the U.S. The author collected data from in-depth interviews with a variety of school personnel. This data was supported by student enrollment data from the National Association of Independent Schools. Findings indicate that current “Diversity” work centers around inclusion and cultural fluency and not racial equity. Simultaneously, while the representation of students of color increased in the last several decades, the representation of Black students at the same time has remained virtually stagnant. Using Critical Race Theory, the author concludes that “Diversity” is a ...

Leadership For Diversity: The Role Of African American Studies In A Multicultural World, 2017 Emory University
Leadership For Diversity: The Role Of African American Studies In A Multicultural World, Delores P. Aldridge
It has been relatively easy for advocates of diversity to sidestep questions about the social and historical origins of policies they favor. The idea of diversity seems to have appeared out of nowhere. But the notion of changing institutions so that they better reflect the great range of peoples and experiences in American Culture is not new. In modern times, the most prominent movement for diversity has been the Civil Rights Movement. African American Studies, the intellectual and scholastic offshoot of that movement, initiated the first wide scale effort to broaden racial and social perspectives within the university.
Economics Of Life And Death: Mortality And Survival Rates For African-Americans, 2017 Clark Atlanta University
Economics Of Life And Death: Mortality And Survival Rates For African-Americans, S. V. Char
The classical textbook definition of economics portrays the field as one that deals chiefly with how a society employs limited resources with alternative uses to produce goods and services for present and/or future consumption. However, in a recent issue of Scientific American, Amartya Sen exhorted professional economists to look at economic science not as a discipline solely concerned with income and wealth, but as one that deals with social issues and paradoxes such as islands of poverty in rich nations, famines amidst plenty, and higher mortality rates and lower survival rates for racial and ethnic minorities. Given this backdrop ...
Fifty Years After Myrdal: Blacks' Racial Policy Attitudes In The 1990s, 2017 George Washington University
Fifty Years After Myrdal: Blacks' Racial Policy Attitudes In The 1990s, Steven A. Tuch, Lee Sigelman, Jack K. Martin
Half a century has passed since the publication of Gunnar Myrdal's monumental two-volume work, An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy (1944). Myrdal painted an agonizing portrait of the pervasiveness of racially prejudiced attitudes and discriminatory practices in American life, but perhaps his most important contribution lay not in the descriptive detail he amassed concerning these conditions (Bobo, 1993), but in the compelling new interpretive context he provided for understanding racial prejudice and discrimination, Central to this context was the paradox posed by the coexistence of race-based social, economic, and political inequality, on the one hand, and ...
A Historical Description Of Black Homicide And Suicide Differentials In The United States: 1950-86, 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha
A Historical Description Of Black Homicide And Suicide Differentials In The United States: 1950-86, Philip E. Secret, Obie Clayton
Philip E. Secret University of Nebraska at Omaha Obie Clayton Homicide and, increasingly, suicide have become serious public health and political problems in the black community. Homicide disproportionately affects certain ethnic and racial groups (Holinger, 1987). Nonwhites, in particular blacks, are more likely than whites to be both victims and offenders. Homicide data collected by the National Centers for Health Statistics show that, in 1986, the homicide rate for blacks was 32.4 per 100,000 population; for whites, it was 5.8 per 100,000. Clearly, one can see that the homicide rate for blacks in the ...

African-American Fruit And Vegetable Garden Project: An Intervention To Promote Fresh Fruit And Vegetable Consumption Among Incarcerated Juvenile Males, Edward V. Wallace
This study set out to identify a means to increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables for incarcerated African American juvenile males through an educational program that focused on planting a garden. Surveys were administered to 125 incarcerated African American juveniles males aged 15 to 17. The program consisted of 39 sessions of 75 minutes each, twice a week for 15 weeks. Sessions focused on fruit and vegetable consumption, gardening, and nutritional knowledge. Prior to the workshops, none of the participants identified fruit and vegetable consumption, gardening and nutritional knowledge. After the workshops, all had increased their nutritional knowledge. Half ...
The Mental Health Of Black Men: A Problem Of Perception, 2017 Clark Atlanta University
The Mental Health Of Black Men: A Problem Of Perception, Narviar C. Calloway
Black men in our society face enormous challenges. Some of these challenges stem from social attitudes and perceptions about African American men, especially as these perceptions impact education, poverty, employment, and health-related problems. Society's response to social stigma, the treatment of social and mental problems and racism are all evident in African Americans' daily relationships with others. Each of these challenges individually can be devastating; collectively, they become overwhelming and catastrophic. It is this author's supposition that the mechanisms that undergrid the challenges of Black men are embedded in race, ethnicity and culture, and that the pervasiveness and ...
Control, Punish, And Conquer: U.S. Public Schools' Attempt To Control Black Males, 2017 Unit 4 School District, Champaign, IL
Control, Punish, And Conquer: U.S. Public Schools' Attempt To Control Black Males, Terence Fitzgerald
Policies and procedures that govern public education in the United States have produced a system of control and punishment that impedes the education of Black males. The historical antecedents of this system are reflected in various forms of racism, from denying education to enslaved Blacks through legal segregation in schools during the post-Civil War period. This study reviews the treatment of Black male children attending public schools in the United States. It focuses on contemporary policies and procedures related to special education, alternative schooling, and the practice of "medicating" children with behavioral difficulties to demonstrate how covert forms of racism ...
Twenty-Seven Years Of Success And Failure At Morehouse, 2017 Morehouse College
Twenty-Seven Years Of Success And Failure At Morehouse, Benjamin E. Mays
I will always remember the first time I met Dr. Benjamin Mays. It was an experience that I will always remember, l had the pleasure of meeting him during a wedding reception several years after his retirement as President of Morehouse College. Unfortunately, I matriculated at Morehouse College the year after Dr. Mays retired and did not have the opportunity of experiencing his mentoring firsthand. However, throughout my years at Morehouse, I developed a deep appreciation for Dr. Mays through his writings and speeches. His works and ideology have had a profound impact upon my life.
Business, Philanthropy And Higher Education, 2017 AT&T Foundation
Business, Philanthropy And Higher Education, Milton Little
AT&T is conspicuous by its presence in support of the post-secondary education of youth especially those of diverse backgrounds. Much, though certainly not all, of this support is provided through grants to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), majority colleges and universities and to the United Negro College Fund. AT&T supports HBCUs for reasons not dissimilar to those of other donors. Before I describe them, let me place our philanthropy and support for higher education in a broader context framed by the unique role played by corporate philanthropy and the special niche ATST has tried to carve among ...

Benjamin Elijah Mays: A Perspective, Richard O. Hope
I recall attending chapel five times a week and a sixth day on Sunday, since I was in the Sunday Morning Choir, Pop Dansby sat in the balcony with his chart of the seating arrangement and checked off those who were not present. As you progressed through the years from freshman to senior, your seating was moved closer to the podium.
As a freshman, coming by train from Nashville, Tennessee, I found my first day at Morehouse memorable. My first task after getting off the train was to find a taxi to the college, and, growing up in the segregated ...
Mays Transcendent And Transcending Mays, 2017 Howard University
Mays Transcendent And Transcending Mays, Herman F. Bostick
The famous African American theologian and Morehouse alumnus, Howard Thurman, has written that:
The time and place of a man's life on earth are the time and place of his body, but the meaning and significance of his life is as vast and far-reaching as his gifts, his times and the passionate commitment of all his powers can make it (Thurman, 1979:1). The time of life on this earth for Benjamin Elijah Mays was the years between 1894 and 1984. The places of his life were several because he traveled frequently and widely. But the places most closely ...
A Sociology Of Immanence And Transcendence: Reflections On The Legacy Of Benjamin Mays, 2017 Education and Urban Studies Harvard University
A Sociology Of Immanence And Transcendence: Reflections On The Legacy Of Benjamin Mays, Charles V. Willie
In 1963, about a generation ago, sociologists in America began to examine and reexamine their concepts of caste, class and status. Dennis Wrong presented a paper at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in which he stated that "Historically, biological continuity has been the major means of preserving the internal solidarity and the distinctive ethos of class from generation to generation..." (Wrong, 1969:518). Wrong mentioned George Orwell's observation, however, that new sets of classes are emerging that are not recruited by the intergenerational transmissions of privilege through the family and whose cohesion does not depend on ...
