Death at an Early Age: The Destruction of the Hearts and Minds of Negro Children in the Boston Public Schools.
Kozol, Jonathan
This book recounts the author's experience of teaching in a predominantly Negro elementary school in Boston as part of a program to upgrade segregated schools. He describes specific incidents to convey the bigoted attitudes of the teachers and other authorities, which he feels were manifest in their behavior and in the curriculum and activities of the school. These attitudes and the unjust treatment have caused the students to feel a debilitating sense of inferiority. (EF)
