The African American Struggle for Secondary Schooling, 1940-1980: Closing the Graduation Gap

This is the first comprehensive account of African American secondary education in the postwar era. Drawing on quantitative datasets, as well as oral history, this compelling narrative examines how African Americans narrowed the racial gap in high school completion. The authors explore regional variations in high school attendance across the United States and how intraracial factors affected attendance within racial groups. [from the publisher] LC2717.R87
