Williams, Sheneka M.; Houck, Eric A. – Education and Urban Society, 2013
The state of North Carolina is one of few states in the South in which two large districts committed to desegregating schools in the early 1970s.

Tienda, Marta – Educational Researcher, 2013
I argue that enrollment of a diverse student body is but a pragmatic first step toward the broader social goal of inclusion and ask whether motives for campus diversification are aligned with pedagogic goals. I address this question by focusing on inclusion, namely, organizational strategies and practices that promote meaningful social and…

This paper considers African-American student protests in secondary schools during the 1960s and early 1970s.

Khalifa, Muhammad; Dunbar, Christopher; Douglasb, Ty-Ron – Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2013
Critical Race Theory (CRT) has become a centered conceptual framework to understand American education and reform (Ladson-Billings and Tate 1995; Solorzano and Yosso; 2001; Decuir and Dixon 2004). Indeed, educational leadership scholars have not been far behind in recognizing the explicative and powerful role of CRT studies in their work (Lopez…

In this article, we attempt to honor the rich legacy of Derrick Bell by detailing how exploring his specific contributions to critical race theory (CRT) provided lessons for developing and refining critical race pedagogy (CRP).
