A Class of Their Own
Black Teachers in the Segregated SouthBook - 2007
Civil rights historian Adam Fairclough chronicles the odyssey of black teachers in the South from emancipation in 1865 to integration 100 years later. The text offers a bold vision of black teachers, built from the stories of real men and women, from teachers in one-room shacks to professors in red brick universities.
