Quest for Equality; the Story of How Six Institutions Opened Their Doors to Serve Negro Children and Their Families. Children's Bureau Publication No. 441-1966.
The Federal government publication is designed to help child care institutions to desegregate their services. Part of the document discusses the impetus for change, methods of desegregation, and the needed initiatives. Described are such steps as establishment of board policy, the roles of administrators and staff, as well as coordination with community institutions. Informing parents and children of the desegregation policy is also important. The desegregation process and experience are illustrated in reports by six institutions, in various parts of the country, which serve dependent, delinquent, retarded, and disturbed children, and adolescent unwed mothers.
