African American Parental Involvement in a Post-"Brown" Era: Facilitating the Academic Achievement of African American Students
Tillman, Linda C.
Journal of School Public Relations, v25 n2 p161-176 Spr 2004
The "Brown v. Board of Education" decision defined public education for African Americans in the United States. In this article I discuss the tradition of African American parental involvement in the pre-"Brown" era, challenges to parental involvement in a post-"Brown" era, and a parental involvement initiative in an urban elementary school. I conclude with a discussion of the continued imperative for African American parental involvement and some implications for leadership.
