Editorial Reviews

Review

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

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

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

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

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.
