The Black Family’s Guide to College Admissions

The Office for DEI, in partnership with Fulton St. Books presents The Black Family’s Guide to College Admissions: A conversation about education, parenting, and race. Join us for light refreshments and dialogue as we discuss school selection and survival in an age of cross-racial conflict.

Book synopsis: Finding the right college is a challenge for all students, but Black families face additional challenges and questions when navigating the admissions process. Veteran admissions experts Timothy L. Fields and Shereem Herndon-Brown demystify this complexity by advising families on when to begin the process, where to apply, and how to be competitive applicants.

Fields and Herndon-Brown address specific concerns that are not often addressed by school counselors or other resources. They highlight how recent social justice movements and legal cases have amplified the necessity of considering both Historically Black Colleges and Universities and predominantly white institutions while covering everything from athletic recruitment and artistic talents to financial aid and step-by-step instructions for how to search for colleges and then apply to them.
