Lecture: The Possible Reduction of African Americans in Higher Education and End of Affirmative Action

Scholar, researcher and activist, Dr. Jahi Issa will speak on the traditional end of African American education at predominately white universities and colleges and historically black colleges and universities. Dr. Issa states that this new era represents a watershed moment in African American Educational pursuits since Brown vs. the Board of Education. His presentation will highlight research that details a possible more than 20 percent reduction in African Americans in higher education over the next 10 years. Dr. Issa will also detail the impact of the forthcoming Affirmative Action Supreme Court ruling, should it lead to its dismantling. Dr. Issa says that all of the aforementioned could result in a devastating impact on progressive approaches to diversity education. This promises to be an engaging, important and informative lecture. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 15, 2013
