    PRESERVING HBCUs' BILLION DOLLAR LEGACY:
    International Law, Self-Determination and the Right to Institutions

    HBCUs have the potential to be a key factor facilitating African
    American self-determination within the United States. They are already
    a recognized entitlement, as well as a demonstration of the historical
    institutional existence of African Americans as a people.  They cross all
    local and state boundaries without conflicting with these legal
    jurisdictions, and serve as a primary instance of how it is possible to
    institutionalize non-territorial minority rights in America whereby African
    Americans can collectively enjoy rule-making powers and policy
    development directed towards their own unique needs. Despite this, they remain
    unequally resourced.

    The present book represents IHRAAM efforts from 2014-2015
    to contextualize the struggle to save HBCUs within the context of the
    international minority right to institutions, and to stimulate debate and
    discussion within the HBCU and African American community as well
    as within government and the international community as to the value
    and applicability of international norms when seeking to resolve the
    ongoing disproportionately negative standing of African Americans in
    social indicators measuring well being—despite their having achieved
    de jure civil rights for nearly half a century.



    THE COLONIAL PRESENT:
    The Rule of Ignorance and the Role of Law in British Columbia

    No treaties were made with indigenous nations residing in those territories
    where now there is a Canadian province called British Columbia. Instead, a
    breathtaking policy of criminalization, assimilation and land rights and
    sovereignty extinguishment has been vigorously carried out against them.
    Present day governments continue that approach, now 150 years

    Why do the people of BC seek the dissolution of some thirty distinct
    indigenous nations? Why do they cry, “One law for all Canadians,” in
    answer to indigenous efforts to exercise their right of self-determination?

    On April 20-21, 2012, key figures in the African American popular leadership
    and intelligentsia broke new ground in Chicago at the IHRAAM-sponsored
    conference, adding new planks to the understanding of where the African
    American struggle had been, where it was now, and the direction it had to
    go to move forward.
