A riveting and honest portrait of the politics and philosophies of the education of black children over the last fifty years. Foster, a leading expert on black educators and the history of black education, has interviewed pioneering teachers from across the country. In presenting their experiences, black teachers go on the record about mixed-race classrooms, the losses and gains accompanying desegregation, repeated cycles of attempted and abandoned reform efforts, and the differing attitudes toward and perceptions of black students among black and white teachers.
