Baumann RM. Constructing Black education at Oberlin College: A documentary history. Athens, Ohio: Ohio University Press; 2010.

"In 1835 Oberlin became the first institute of higher education to make a cause of racial egalitarianism when it decided to educate students‚ 'irrespective of color.' Yet the visionary college's implementation of this admissions policy was uneven. In Constructing Black Education at Oberlin College: A Documentary History, Roland M. Baumann presents a comprehensive documentary history of the education of African American students at Oberlin College."
