Would African Americans Have Been Better Off without Brown v. Board of Education?
Balkin, Jack M.
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n35 p102-104 Spr 2002
Discusses the opinion held by some Blacks and many Whites that Supreme Court enforcement of the separate but equal rule of Plessy v. Ferguson would have produced better educational opportunities for blacks than one of forced racial integration. Suggests that this theory is incorrect, particularly in regard to African Americans in northern states. (SM)
