A Harvard-sponsored Black College Conference will bring prominent black educators to Gutman Library today and tomorrow to discuss the administration of the nation's predominantly black colleges.

Conference director Charles V. Willie, professor of Education, said yesterday the conference will include four black college presidents. Among them will be Dr. Benjamin E. Mays, president emeritus of Morehouse College, the alma mater of Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Mays is the dean of black higher education," Ronald R. Edmonds, director of the Center for Urban Studies of the Graduate School of Education, which arranged the conference, said yesterday.

The purpose of the conference is "to inform ourselves and the nation of achievements of black colleges and put an end to the age of insult and insensitivity concerning relations and education in this country," Willie said.
