The Water in the Fishbowl: Historicizing "Ways with Words."
Prendergast, Catherine
Written Communication, v17 n4 p452-90 Oct 2000
Examines Shirley Brice Heath's letters and other materials at the time she was researching "Ways with Words." Finds that "Ways with Words" can most fruitfully be read as a story of the persistence of prejudice, suggesting the failure of the arguments in favor of desegregation to broker lasting reforms toward equity.
