About this book

The book analyzes the struggle of African Americans to gain access and equity in higher education in the United States. It chronicles some of the history prior to court ordered segregation and traces the mandate to desegregate by following the Adams v. Richardson (1973) case, which ordered the dismantling of dual systems of higher education.

Reviews

"Maples' book is an authoritative source on the legacy of desegregation in public higher education in America. It contributes to African American history, the history of public higher education, and American history in general. As the author convincingly argues, African American history is American history. This book is a must-read for students and faculty in the humanities, education, and the social and behavioral sciences." - Imali J. Abala, Professor of English at Ohio Dominican University, USA, and author of A Fallen Citadel, The Dilemma of Jahenda the Teenage Mother, The Disinherited, and Move On, Trufosa.

"The path to determining the root cause of an issue can sometimes reveal competing phenomena that serve to obfuscate the truth. In her book, Maples provides a strong and thoughtful argument for how the politics of desegregation have had a lasting effect on the enrollment of African Americans in higher education institutions, even to this day. This is an important book for not only students and faculty to read, but also for community leaders and law makers who continue to look for new ways of providing access to higher education for all of our young people." - Colleen Perry Keith, President, Spartanburg Methodist College, USA
