"The relationship between race and education continues as a major issue in American society. This book, which includes Alan Wieder's work over the last twenty years, addresses issues like racism, racial bigotry, and racial inequality in both school and society in the United States. Special attention is given to school integration, racism in education, race and textbooks, and Afrocentrism. The book includes three different types of essays - narratives, oral histories, and photo essays - that each provide different lenses to study white racism and education."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
