By Michael R. Heintze

evaluating the non-public black faculties of Texas with its public associations and with different black faculties around the kingdom, Michael R.

In his comparisons, Heintze discusses old backgrounds, curricula, and funds. He concludes that regardless of negative financing, constrained amenities, and shortages of academics and kit, the self sustaining black faculties in Texas made very important, special, and lasting contributions.
