Dr. Ibram X Kendi, “The Black Campus Movement”
Dr. Ibram H. Rogers is a postdoctoral fellow in the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis in New Brunswick, N.J. His writings have been published in several academic journals, magazines, and newspapers. He earned his doctorate in African American Studies from Temple University. His dissertation is the first full length study on what he calls the Black Campus Movement, the struggle of newly arrived Black students in the late 1960s and early 1970s, who demanded the diversification of higher education. They organized BSUs and successfully fought for Black Studies departments and courses, Black Cultural Centers, and the increase of Black students, faculty, administrators, and coaches.
