Part and Apart: The Black Experience at Cornell 1865-1945 examines life at the University for African American students during the years 1865-1945.

Poring through archival materials at CUL, including letters, diaries, student records, newspapers and photographs author and historian Carol Kammen assesses the way in which African American students navigated campus life in the early twentieth century; the relationships they fostered among themselves and their white counterparts; the obstacles they faced and the resources they used to overcome these obstacles and the way in which they maintained their identity in a predominantly white Community.
