George Washington Univ., Washington, DC. Inst. for Educational Leadership.; National Public Radio, Washington, DC.
This book is a collection of transcripts from an eight-part radio series entitled: "Race Against Time: School Desegregation." Each program in the series focuses on a different American community with the intent of historically tracing the struggle for equal education and the fight against segregation. Discussions of various issues are presented in an interview format between key spokespersons and program commentators. Included among the spokespersons are school administrators, students, teachers, representatives of special interest groups, political scientists and parents who are currently involved in education or who were active in the public school system during the inception of desegregation. Among the issues discussed are anti-businq sentiments, white resistance to integration of neighborhoods, school strikes, economic and social discrimination practices, and possible solutions to racial problems.
