Walking Slowly but Surely

The Readjusters and the Quality School Campaigns in Richmond

(p.157) 7 Walking Slowly but Surely
Educational Reconstruction

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses black Richmonders’ continued struggle for quality public schools. Capitalizing on the emergence of the Readjuster Party, black Richmonders made significant progress in their overall campaign’s objectives but struggled for a resolution to school funding challenges. Throughout, they remained firmly committed to the tenets of Educational Reconstruction, quality public schools, and educational access for all Virginians, black and white. By 1890, lingering funding challenges made black Richmonders and their partners realize the necessity of a renewed relationship with federal government in their quest for quality public schools.
