Institutional Request for B. A. Degree in Ethnic Studies, Dec. 12, 1969

a page from a proposal for the Ethnic Studies program

Author: Bullock, Henry Allen

Bullock prepared this formal proposal after the success of his Institute for Ethnic Studies that summer. During the 1960s and 70s, Bullock was active in pushing for new pedagogies to train Black teachers. Note the long justification on pragmatic grounds before the brief culminating point about the need to reclaim and preserve the cultural experiences of minorities “as a part of the American heritage”.
