More Than 4.5 Million African Americans Now Hold a Four-Year College Degree

More Than 4.5 Million African Americans Now Hold a Four-Year College Degree

Today nearly 4.6 million African Americans hold a four-year college degree. Yet the racial gap in degree attainments remains large and it does not appear to be shrinking.

Another serious blemish on this encouraging news is the fact that a large and fast-growing majority of these degrees earned by African Americans have been earned by black women.

At the time of the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s, about 10,000 American blacks — one in 1,000 — were college educated. The editor of this journal, who was born in 1924, points out that a black child born that same year had about as much chance of completing four years of college as he had of playing shortstop for the Boston Red Sox. Today the world is different. There are more than 4.5 million African Americans alive today who hold a four-year college degree.

The breakdown is as follows: According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 3,215,000 blacks in this country who have a bachelor’s degree. And there are an additional 1,078,000 African Americans who have both a four-year college degree and a master’s degree. An additional 150,000 blacks hold a professional degree in fields such as law, business, and medicine. Another 136,000 Afri-can Americans have ob-tained a doctorate. Over-all, 4,579,000 African Americans possess a four-year college de-gree or higher. 
This is breathtaking progress.
