Mary Holmes College (West Point, MS 39773)
Jimmie McLean (Project Director: July 1970 to present)

Faculty Development Project

Two ten-week seminars (one on Afro-American history, one on Afro-American literature) for ten faculty members at Mary Holmes Jr. College to prepare these faculty members to teach black studies. ABSTRACT: Continuation of successful FD-24-70-3347 project, designed to strengthen the faculty of predominantly Negro Mary Holmes Jr. College in the field of black studies. The project is divided into two parts: Part I, two ten-week seminars in Afro-American history with ten faculty members participating in each; Part II, a continuation of seminar with the same faculty pursuing a course of studies in Afro-American literature. Faculty are able to transfer their newly acquired knowledge and perceptions directly and immediately into their day-to-day contacts with students, filling the pressing need of the culturally isolated rural black students for identification with their heritage and with the creative contributions of their contemporaries. As in the previous project, funds for faculty stipends, visiting resource persons, travel and per diem, books and periodical allowance.
