Facilitating Desegregation: A Handbook for Community Organizations.
Stout, Robert T.
This handbook describes activities and strategies that have been used successfully by community organizations to promote school desegregation. The information presented is based, in part, on findings from the Rand Corporation's evaluation of the nonprofit organization program of the Emergency School Aid Act. Specific actions and strategies that seem to contribute to citizen group success in particular phases of school desegregation are discussed. It is pointed out that citizen groups that have successfully modified school desegregation have usually chosen a strategy that can be described as "political" or "activist." Reference is made to the importance of strong leadership and leadership style in any group concerned with facilitating desegregation. Characteristics of strong community group leaders are described and steps that might be taken by community group leaders to make their groups more effective are suggested. (Author/EB)
