This book examines colleges and universities across the diaspora with majority African, African-American, and other Black designated student enrolments. Research confirms that these campuses possess a flourishing landscape with racial, economic, and gender diversity while sharing a Black identity created through global racialization. Globally, Black colleges and universities create academic and social environments where different races, sexes, cultures, languages, nationalities, and citizenship status coexist, enabling academic achievement, civic engagement, and colonial resistance. This volume highlights racial hegemony in multi-national student experiences and achievement; examines the social and career implications of attendance on lifelong success; explores the impact of global Black marginalization and racist ideology on Black college communities; and explores the role gender plays in outcomes and attainment. This timely work engages the diversity of Black colleges and universities and explains their critical role in promoting academic excellence in higher education.

Part 1 delves into US perspectives on race and identity in black colleges, with discussion of black male students at HBCUs, black women administrators and faculty at HBCUs, and non-black student recruitment. Part 2 encompasses global perspectives on race and culture in black colleges, looking at HBCU labor market outcomes, collegiate desegregation in South Africa and the US, and the absence of indigenous African higher education. One chapter is devoted to an HBCU in the Caribbean: the University of the Virgin Islands. The book concludes with reflections on African Americans choose HBCUs in the 21st century.--Annotation (c)2018 "( "
