The volume takes a comprehensive look at the education of African Americans, specifically early childhood through postsecondary education, and relevant public policy issues since 1940.

Willie); (3) "School Desegregation since Gunar Myrdal's 'American Dilemma'" (R. A. Dentler); (4) "The Future of School Desegregation" (C. V.
