Reviews

“This is an important study that quite effectively chronicles the politics of school desegregation in a major city during the course of the black freedom struggle. … This is a wonderful book for students and scholars exploring sources on the history of education after the brown decision. It is also a helpful resource for understanding the challenges facing African American and Latino communities seeking to assure a quality education for their children.” (Gerald L. Smith, Ohio Valley History, Vol. 15, 2015)

. . . Desegregating Chicago's Public Schools . . . is solidly researched and accessibly written . . . No book covers this topic . . . That attention alone makes it invaluable and worthy of publication. The research itself is thorough; the author has uncovered sources that no one else has used in the past to tell a new story.' Amanda Seligman, Associate Professor of History and Urban Studies, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, USA
