Leadership Training Institute in Problems of School Desegregation.
Fielder, Marie; Dyckman, Louise M.
All participants were selected on the basis of their leadership qualities, responsible and identifiable concern with the process of school desegregation, and their activities specifically concentrated in the Richmond Unified School District. Of the sixty-nine adult participants, 37 were teachers and 11 were community persons representing both black and white groups. The students, also representative of various socio-economic backgrounds, were in the ninth, tenth, and eleventh grades. Objectives centered around techniques, skills, and understandings necessary to solve problems incident to desegregation. A leadership training model to highlight common factors, was created. The Institute, which afforded the participants the opportunity for interpersonal relationships across race, class, and age lines, was held from June 23 to July 14, 1967. (Authors/CB)
