The White Architects of Black Education : Ideology and Power in America, 1865-1954
by William H. Watkins and William Ayers and Therese Quinn




Overview -

A historical investigation into the political and ideological foundations of the miseducation of the Negro in America, this timely and provocative volume explores the men and ideas that helped shape educational and societal apartheid from the Civil War to the new millennium. It is a study of how big corporate power uses private wealth to legislate, shape unequal race relations, broker ideas, and define acceptable social change. Drawing on little-known biographies of White power brokers who shaped Black education, William Watkins explains the structuring of segregated education that has plagued the United States for much of the 20th century. With broad and interdisciplinary appeal, this book is written in a language accessible to lay people and scholars alike.
