Henry Bullock, in the course of his comprehensive study, shows how the unintended consequences of the Negro’s developing educational opportunities caused basic changes in American race relations. He begins by examining the custom of educating slaves for practical reasons and the institution, following the Civil War, of a freedmen’s school system. He then traces the development of a special education for Negroes that followed the collapse of congressional Reconstruction and shows its impact upon the school desegregation movement, culminating in the Supreme Court decision of 1954. In conclusion, he discusses the newest chapter in the historical process, the “withdrawal to resegregation.”
