Beschreibung:

In 1919 the NAACP organized a voting bloc powerful enough to compel the city of Atlanta to budget $1.5 million for the construction of schools for black students.
This victory would have been remarkable in any era, but in the context of the Jim Crow South it
was revolutionary. Schooling Jim Crow tells the story of this little-known
campaign, which happened less than thirteen years after the Atlanta race riot of 1906 and just
weeks before a wave of anti-black violence swept the nation in the summer after the end of World
War I. Despite the constant threat of violence, Atlanta's black voters were able to force
the city to build five black grammar schools and Booker T. Washington High School, the
city's first publicly funded black high school. Schooling Jim Crow
reveals how they did it and why it matters.
