Abstract:
This thesis critically examines the historical basis of Community as used to define Black people in Britain. Assumptions about the Black Community and their impact on beliefs, practices and policy issues are interrogated. A redefinition of the basis of whitelblack relationships provides alternative frameworks for analysis. It demonstrates how the tendency to rank all Black people into a particular socio-economic, class and alternative cultural dimension is institutionalised and exploited by the government for the benefit of society. This study attempts to analyse the connection between the apparent lack of opportunity for Black people and the need for special provision in further and higher education. Focusing on research carried out on Black people in Manchester from 1980 to date, it explores the notion of Access as a special education provision for Black people of Caribbean origin. The collection of data sought to reveal recipients' own viewpoints and experiences of Special Access. The research findings are analysed in order to identify some of the implications of special provision in the black community and establish whether Black people can challenge the bureaucracies that limit the opportunities offered to them.
