ABSTRACT
This article discusses how the loss of African American colleges and universities may lead to the disappearance of African Americans with doctoral degrees and training African American leaders. Just 15 African American colleges and universities accounted for half of the institutions that ranked highest in graduating African Americans who obtained a Ph.D. degree in 2003-2004. These statistics show just how important these colleges are for producing African American faculty. The debate about who should have access to higher education is framed in such a way as to presume that merit and access are mutually exclusive principles, thereby shutting down a meaningful discussion of access and equity.
