Black Mobilians’ Struggle for Quality Public Schools

Educational Reconstruction

Fordham University Press

This chapter explores how black Mobilians redefined their struggle for education, freedom, and citizenship through a series of quality school campaigns. As new educational partners jockeyed for administrative control of the schools, black Mobilians realized that quality public schools would prevent previous educational victories from becoming moot. Despite experiencing more setbacks than success, this chapter argues that black Mobilians never lost sight on their vision education and citizenship. Their struggle now entailed making the public schools into enduring institutions, sustaining African American citizenship, and fostering strategic partnerships inside and outside of the classroom in order to weather the political and racial storm of Redemption.
