The South and Her Children: School Desegregation 1970-1971. A Report.
Anderson, Robert E., Jr., Ed.
This report begins with a general appraisal of school desegregation in the Southern region and concludes with a discussion by four black high school students who explain in specific terms what their first year of desegregated schooling has meant to them. Interposed are four community studies and an assessment of the continuing segregated academy movement, including court action and other crucial issues arising from the experiences of the selected communities. While many problems remain, the six individual contributors to the study agree that the important and hopeful factor was that the students were there and were involved in determining their own destiny.
