The School Desegregation Crisis of Cleveland, Ohio, 1963-1964: The Catalyst for Black Political Power in a Northern City.
Moore, Leonard Nathaniel
Journal of Urban History, v28 n2 p135-57 Jan 2002
Describes a failed yearlong quest to desegregate Cleveland's schools that ended up unifying the city's black community and helping black Clevelanders understand the limitations of negotiation, direct action, boycotts, and the legal system in creating permanent change. Black residents turned to the political arena to realize the potential of black political power. (SM)
