Abstract:As a case study of Black Power's influence on the UIUC campus, this dissertation contributes to the discussion regarding the influence Black students had on helping to shape the nature of education at predominantly White institutions. In particular, it allows for an understanding of how unique factors influenced the rise in and character of Black student discontent at a large, land-grant, residential, Midwestern institution. Though unique for several reasons, the discussions and demands that came out of the Black student movement at UIUC were not unlike the discussions and demands at other predominantly White institutions across the nation. This dissertation is an attempt to contribute to the dialogue on the rise, ideology, development, and outcome of Black student movements across the nation in an effort to determine the full impact of Black student efforts and Black Power on American higher education.
