The unfolding History of Black School Administrations in Arkansas, 1900-2000. Under segregation and in its aftermath, black teachers and principals created havens of dignity and uplift for their students and communities. In Arkansas, where even education of white children has always been underfunded, the work of these administrators has been particularly heroic.
This book outlines the challenges to get generations of black administrators in the state, and it maps their achievements. It also offers the first reference guide to the personnel who have educated generations of black children through the most extreme cirumstances.
