Quiet Warriors: Black Teachers' Memories of Integration in Two Virginia Localities
Mayo, J. B., Jr.
Multicultural Perspectives, v9 n2 p17-25 Jun 2007
In this article, the author examines the transition from segregation to full integration in two Virginia school districts, 1965-1970. He begins with short participant profiles and reveals how personal connections uncovered new voices in the school desegregation process. Next, the author gives an overview of political events in Virginia following "Brown v. Board of Education" (1954). The focus then shifts to the classroom experiences of ten Black teachers who integrated faculties in Powhatan County and the city of Charlottesville school districts. The author closes by predicting how the teachers in this study would react to the current school environments. (Contains 1 table.)
