Editorial Reviews

Review

Brown's Battleground examines the victors and the victims and describes the power of black high school students' activism in confronting injustices in a so-called democratic society. It makes an invaluable contribution to scholarship on U.S. legal, educational, and African American history.--Journal of African American History



A must-read for historians and for all educators wishing to engage contextually based historical studies rigorously. It is an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate seminars on race and education in the United States.--Oral History Review



Has provided the definitive account of the Prince Edward story as well as a startling reminder that private schools and tuition grants can never perform the vital job that our nation's public schools provide. In doing so she has allowed the Prince Edward story to speak again.--Louisiana History



A welcome addition to the growing body of scholarship on school desegregation and the civil rights era in Virginia.--Virginia Magazine



Titus effectively provides a comprehensive history of the darkest hour of massive resistance in the wake of the Brown v. Board of Education decision.--Journal of Southern History



"A wonderful addition to the civil rights historiography as well as the study of educational policy." --The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth

Review

An extraordinary accomplishment, this book is the definitive account of Prince Edward County's abandonment of public education and its consequences for the county's children.--James R. Sweeney, Old Dominion University

|Brown's Battleground should be required reading for all those professional educators, school board members, and politicians who believe that public schools have outlived their usefulness. Jill Ogline Titus's gripping, masterful account of Prince Edward County's closing its schools rather than integrating them is as timely as it is sobering. Quietly but eloquently, she makes the case that what went down in Virginia a half century ago speaks directly to our condition today.--John Dittmer, author of Local People: The Struggle of Civil Rights in Mississippi

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Thoroughly researched book. Adds in depth details about the struggle to bring quality education to Prince Edward County after the Brown decision. Especially good at filing in the details behind the events during the 1970s to 1990s. The book is well written and moves along. A must read for any student of integration.
