Destructive Denial: A Century of Education in a Southern Town.
Nix, Mary
Journal of Negro Education, v62 n4 p405-08 Fall 1993
Summarizes the history of education in a rural, primarily African-American town in North Carolina as one of denial used as a coping mechanism for disappointment. Denial of real problems by blacks and whites has contributed to the town's weakened sense of community and its lack of a local school. (SLD)
