The Impact of the Desegregation Process on the Education of Black Students: A Retrospective Analysis
Irvine, Jacqueline Jordan; Irvine, Russell W.
Journal of Negro Education, v76 n3 p297-305 Sum 2007
This article is a retrospective analysis of a commentary we published in "The Journal of Negro Education" 25 years ago in which we discussed the interrelationships between and among the interpersonal, institutional, community, and African American achievement variables before and after the historic 1954 "Brown" decision. We discuss in this piece contemporary factors that have modified these variable, such as rising segregation in our nation's schools, decreasing numbers of African American teachers, increasing federal involvement with decreasing autonomy of African American schools, changing definitions of the African American community, and emerging conservative African American voices.
