This chapter relates the six collegiate experiences discussed in the previous chapter to an institutional context of black women's collegiate experiences. Attention is focused on the existing differences between the historically black colleges and universities and the predominantly white institutions. This chapter also highlights and emphasizes the determination of black women to excel despite several challenges and hindrances hurtled against them. This chapter takes a closer look at black women's appreciation of their educational access, their frustration with discriminatory policies, and their dedication to community uplift in their academic quests.
