Reviews

'[Rogers] develops a compelling case that black students changed the racial dynamics of American colleges and universities Rogers has made a major contribution by rendering this historic movement comprehensive so future generations can appreciate how its creative forces changed higher education.' Journal of American History

'Rogers has written a powerful account of the role of black student movements in US higher education from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s. The most impressive aspect of Rogers's work is his prodigious archival research. This is an important study. Highly recommended.' - CHOICE
