Black Students in Interracial Schools. A Guide for Students, Teachers, and Parents.
This book is written to address the needs of Black youth who attend interracial schools. By interracial is meant a school in which students and staff of more than one race are found at the same time. Aimed primarily at the high school student, the book is a guide to success in school and is designed to assist in the development of skills to cope with the school environment and the larger social world. Black students have proven that they can be successful in the dominant culture, but little has been written to help them. The first chapter, "The Facts of Life," gives an overview of bad things that are happening to Black people as a group. The second chapter stresses the importance of knowing who you are, and the third and fourth emphasize the importance of the student's associations and family background. Chapter 5 discusses dealing with the law and the criminal justice system. Chapter 6 reviews the importance of good health and healthy habits. Chapters 7 and 8 deal with academic success, educational aspirations, and career goals. An appendix contains a list entitled "Authors You Should Read." (SLD)
