An Analysis of Factors Affecting Satisfaction of African American Students at PWI and HBCU
The main points were organized into central themes. The themes were organized by type of institution, (historically black colleges and universities or predominantly white institutions) for comparison purposes. While court case is being challenge of Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court the decision of 1954, profound changes have occurred in patterns of college attendance among black Americans. Researchers report increases in the number of black students in higher education and the shift of black students from traditional black colleges to predominantly white colleges (Fleming, 1984, Mingle, 1981, Jaynes and Williams, 1989). Black students on white campuses were a rare sight until the late 1960’s (Fleming 1984; Mingle, 1981; Jaynes and Williams, 1989). Black college enrollment peaked by the late 1970’s with almost 60 percent of black students enrolled in predominantly white colleges (Mingle, 1981).
