THE ST. LOUIS STORY--A STUDY OF DESEGREGATION.
VALIEN, BONITA H.
FOR SEVERAL YEARS PRIOR TO THE 1954 SUPREME COURT DECISION, MEMBERS OF ST. LOUIS SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND AGENCIES, BOTH PRIVATE AND PUBLIC, SOUGHT TO INCORPORATE THE PRINCIPLES OF AMERICAN DEMOCRACY INTO THEIR PLANNING. PLANNING WAS AIMED AT FOSTERING A CLIMATE FAVORABLE TO ST. LOUIS' ACCEPTANCE OF THE SCHOOL DESEGREGATION DECISION. THESE ORGANIZATIONS SOUGHT TO BRING TO THE PROGRAM A WIDE RANGE OF SKILLS AND ABILITIES IN ORDER TO BUILD COMMUNICATION LINES BETWEEN PERSONS OF BOTH RACES. A REVIEW OF EXPERIENCES IN OTHER LOCALITIES, COMPARED TO THOSE OF ST. LOUIS, INDICATED THAT RAPID DESEGREGATION SHORTENS THE PERIOD OF ANXIETY AND STRESS AND GAINS GENERAL COMMUNITY ACCEPTANCE IN LESS TIME.
