Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Science is a field of study in which the proportion of blacks is drastically lower than that of the entire population (Humphries, 1976). Various studies have been conducted to investigate the characteristics associated with persons in the sciences (Flakes, 1973). There have also been recent studies of blacks in the sciences and the characteristics associated with them (Tilford, 1974). However, this research has not yet revealed why black students do not major in the fields of physical and biological science.
