The Sea Island Citizenship Schools: Literacy, Community Organization, and the Civil Rights Movement
Schneider, Stephen
College English, v70 n2 p144-167 Nov 2007
We need to complicate current accounts of critical pedagogy by examining how educational institutions beyond traditional classrooms have served progressive movements. One example was the Sea Island Citizenship Schools. By examining the latter's history, we also become better aware of how the education-related work of the American civil rights movement encompassed more than the desegregation prompted by the Supreme Court's 1954 "Brown" decision. (Contains 9 notes.)
