"Getting It Straight": Southern Black School Patrons and the Struggle for Equal Education in the Pre- and Post-Civil Rights Era.
Turner, Kara Miles
Journal of Negro Education, v72 n2 p217-29 Spr 2003
Describes the historical efforts of economically, politically, and socially oppressed black communities across the segregated U.S. south to give their children a quality education, highlighting rural Prince Edward County, Virginia. In an attempt to circumvent Brown v. Board of Education (1954), white leaders closed every public school in the county until 1964, when the U.S. Supreme Court ordered them reopened on a desegregated basis. (Contains references.) (SM)
