520    This book is a narrative study of the lives and 
       experiences of sixty-eight Black collegians in a set of 
       northern private colleges in the Midwest between 1945 and 
       1965. Through oral histories and archival material, this 
       text documents and reflects on their experiences in the 
       racially isolated, northern, rural towns in Ohio, Michigan,
       Indiana, and Western Pennsylvania. This history 
       illuminates both the empowerment of these collegians and 
       the persistent challenges of enacting institutional values
       in the face of resistance from both outside and within. 
       Stewart seeks to understand the nature of progress toward 
       pluralistic diversity in college environments 
       characterized by the paradox of racial homogeneity and 
       interracial engagement. In this way, the complex interplay
       of social movements, institutional context, individual 
       identities, and the experiences of marginalized students 
       in postsecondary education are more effectively 
       demonstrated
