dc.description.abstract Affirmative action is currently under fire in colleges and universities across America. The purpose of this thesis is to explore affirmative action in higher education and its' effects on the African American community. The issues of black self-doubt, poor schools, the stigma of "acting white," and racial tension will be discussed in detail. In the end, I hope that this thesis will create awareness in the reader about some of the "forgotten issues" of affirmative action and that the reader refines his or her own opinion on the controversial topic.
