Black Women in the Ivory Tower, 1850–1954

Stephanie Y. Evans

University Press of Florida

This chapter focuses on research, which is one of the cores of higher education that raises questions of interest on scholarly agenda, curricular focus, pedagogical practice, and responsibilities to communities. This chapter focuses on the contributions of Cooper and Bethune on the definition and modification of research. Although both exhibited parallelism in their ideas of research, knowledge creation, and meaning because of their cultural identities, both also illustrated nuances that separated one from the other. This chapter discusses Cooper's rational approach to research, wherein she argues the logic of faith in God and Bethune's metaphysical research approach, and she claims to have visions and powers from her ancestors.

Keywords:   research, higher education, Cooper, Bethune, knowledge creation, rational approach, research approach
