Edited collection -- School Desegregation in Selected U.S. States *Re-posting*
Call for Papers Deadline:
This is a re-posting with additional information. The
editors of a collection of essays on "Implementing Brown v.
Board of Education: School Desegregation in Selected *U.S.
States*, 1954-1976" are seeking contributors. The 10-12
essays chosen or produced will each examine the struggle over
school desegregation in a different U.S. state, with
representation including the North and West. We prefer
essays with interstate and national comparisons and
conclusions. Key questions include: the role of the state
NAACP, state government actions and policies, key
attorneys/judges/judicial rulings, the geography and race
relations variations within each state, ties to national
events, the timeframe of desegregation (initial, token,
substantial, busing if relevant), and analyses as to why
desegregation proceeded as it did. The emphasis will be on
how African Americans and other supporters of school
desegregation attempted to implement the Brown decision to
bring about school desegregation in key U.S. states. The
collection is under contract with a southern university
press, anticipated publication late 2005 or early 2006.
Essay length will be approximately 20-25 pages, with initial
submissions due in early fall 2004 and final submissions due
Interested or potential contributors, please respond with a
CV and a 1-2 page research description, off-list to Brian
Daugherity via email.
