Description - White Money/Black Power by Noliwe M. Rooks
The first exploration of the history of African American Studies, which found its greatest support in white philanthropic money. Rooks shatters the myth of African American Studies as a development of black protest and Black Power and confronts the field's true history-many African American programs were directly funded by the Ford Foundation, a white philanthropic institution.
