Summary

This topical paper summarizes the variety of responses made by individual junior college presidents to the demands (position papers) of black student activists. The first section of the report presents the presidents' attitudes, illustrated in part by their own statements. The second section presents a selected number of presidents' formal responses to the black students' demands. A formal response pattern evolved in which replies followed the same format as the demands that were presented. The relative success of black activists is due to: (1) the administrators' fear of violence; (2) the possibility that violence might lead to race riots; and (3) the willingness of black students to resort to violence to obtain concessions. Most of the black junior college presidents who have been appointed in the last five years might be considered the beneficiaries of activism. While they have as little control as white presidents over the major social forces contributing to the unrest among blacks, they can bring to the college a greater sensitivity to the needs and aspirations of black students. Other related documents by the author are ED 041 578 and ED 042 453. (CA)
