A child shall lead them : two days in September 1957( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleven African-American first-grade children initiated the desegregation of previously all-white elementary schools in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sept. 9 and 10, 1957. Nashville was one of the first cities in the South to act on the Supreme Court 1954 decision, Brown vs. The Board of Education. The film compares the Nashville story with events that took place the same week at Little Rock (Arkansas) High School. Three of those children, now grown, and their parents discuss the events of those days, including the bombing of the Hattie Cotton school, and the courage required to respond to the Court's landmark decision. The story is told through the use of first-person narratives, and archival photos and footage.--From publisher description

School desegregation : a report card from the South by John Egerton( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an account of the desegregation process in several southern states. It contains detailed case studies of five southern school districts (Charlotte-Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; Williamsburg County, South Carolina; Clarke County, Georgia; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Hillsborough County, Florida) and shorter profiles of six others (Annisten, Alabama; Austin, Texas; Bogalusa, Louisiana; Nashville, Tennessee; Norfolk, Virginia; and Meridian, Mississippi). It also includes preliminary analysis of results from a southern opinion survey conducted on almost 300 school systems in January, 1976 by the Institute for Social Research at Florida State University, and the returns from an informal questionnaire mailed to more than 500 individual southerners by the Southern Regional Council. The major conclusion from the case studies and profiles and surveys in the report is that there has been no decrease in the quality of education of blacks or whites as a result of desegregation.

Higher education for "high risk" students by John Egerton( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of 162 colleges and universities found that 86 of them had some kind of involvement in efforts to enroll "high risk" students. Most of these students are from a disadvantaged, minority group background and do not have the traditional preparatory and personal experiences to qualify for admission to institutions of higher education. Questionnaire responses from 11 public and 7 private institutions indicated the nature, extent, variety of approaches, and recruitment procedures of the high risk programs. Federal government and foundation funds have financed many of the special efforts to find and prepare able disadvantaged high school students but there has been almost no support for developing programs in higher education for these students. Institutions with such programs face the issue of whether or not the students should have special programs and attention. Negro students are often torn by a conflict between their involvement with Black Power and accepting white help. The report also includes descriptions of outstanding programs at both public and private institutions as well as brief summaries of others. An appendix lists agencies and organizations which are involved with higher education opportunities. (Nh)
