Most people tend to think of the atmosphere at institutions of higher learning as a somewhat rarefied one, where there is dedication to the principles of academic freedom and humanistic ideals. When we learn the contrary - that they are all too frequently dehumanizing institutions run by petty bureaucrats - we are shocked. Sch shocks were for Margaret Foster, the semi-autobiographical heroine of Locked In-Locked Out. Having achieved her PhD, she not unnaturally expected to find a greater range of academic opportunity open to her. Unfortunately, she forgot that she was also black and a woman.
