INTEGRATION IS NOT THE ISSUE.
JOHNSON, EDWINA C.
THE MEANING OF INTEGRATION AND SOME CHANGES WHICH SHOULD OCCUR IN AMERICAN LIFE ARE EXAMINED. THE DEFAMATION OF THE NEGRO IN THE PRINTED WORD, NOVELS, MOTION PICTURES, AND PARTICULARLY IN SCHOOL TEXTBOOKS IS ILLUSTRATED. MANY TEXTBOOKS OMIT NEGRO CONTRIBUTIONS TO AMERICAN LIFE AND NULLIFY CHILDREN'S ASPIRATIONS BY RELEGATING NEGROES TO A PASSIVE ROLE IN LIFE. BOOKER T. WASHINGTON, GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER, JACKIE ROBINSON, AND RALPH BUNCHE ARE USUALLY THE ONLY NEGROES MENTIONED IN TEXTBOOKS. EDUCATORS SHOULD NOT ONLY DEVELOP SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS, BUT SHOULD ALSO USE THEIR POWER AND POSITIONS TO GET THE TRUTH WRITTEN INTO TEXTBOOKS. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "INTEGRATED EDUCATION", ISSUE 13, FEBRUARY 1965.
