My Time with "The Journal of Negro Education"
Rector, Theresa L. A.
Journal of Negro Education, v76 n3 p402-407 Sum 2007
Theresa Rector spent 13 years working with Charles H. Thompson during the height of "The Journal's" contribution to educational and political achievements of the early 1950s and 1960s. Crucial to the legacy of "The Journal" was the "Brown v. Board of Education" landmark case and all the political pundits who interestingly met with Dean Thompson in the very offices where "The Journal" was housed. This article provides a historical montage of events that allow us to relive that time and place.
