We are not poor and dumb, writes Areva Martin:
According to the National Center of Education Statistics/U.S. Census, more than half of all black women, specifically between the ages of 18 and 24, are enrolled in college, and black women overall outpace other race and gender groups in terms of college enrollment. Black women also earned the highest number of degrees amongst all racial/ethnic groups during the study’s period of 2009-2010. Black women earned 68% of associate’s degrees; 66% of bachelor’s degrees; 71% of master’s degrees; and 65% of doctor’s degrees earned by black students.
