Exhibition Board - Henry Bullock and the Double Consciousness

exhibition board entitled

Henry Bullock, the first African American to hold a permanent faculty position at UT, taught in the History and Sociology departments from 1968 to 1971. Following a Ph.D. in Sociology, Bullock wrote several influential books on education, prejudice, and society, including A History of Negro Education in the South, which won the Bancroft Prize in 1968. Bullock criticized Black colleges for pursuing an assimilationist model and thereby failing to serve students who, in his view, needed a double consciousness of both hegemonic “WASP” culture and the students’ own Black culture.
