The Social Scientists' Role in Brown vs. Board of Education: A Non-Revisionist Appraisal.
Smith, M. Brewster
The social scientist has a public responsibility which deserves as much attention as scientific and professional concerns. Some social scientists, retreating from this ideal, are now rewriting the history of the liberal movements of the 1960s. This revisionism, a product of contemporary neoconservatism, hinders the continuing efforts that social scientists must make in the struggle for social justice. As they did in the past, on issues such as school desegregation, social scientists must bring their disciplines to bear in the advocacy of stands on particular civil and political issues. (WP)
