This study considered the question of how students of color participating in Social Action Program (SAP) perceived their experiences in the program as compared with their White classmates. This study paid special attention to racial differences in how participants perceived the climate of this program. The findings revealed that the students of color participating in SAP described a weaker sense of community in the SAP classroom than did their White classmates and were often silent during the very discussions in which diverse perspectives would catalyze student learning and growth. In addition, many students of color expressed a reluctance to engage in race discussions with their classmates or to respond to perspectives they perceived as naïve, inaccurate, or offensive.
