9780300054330: Blacks in the White Establishment?: A Study of Race and Class in America

In this book, a social psychologist and a political sociologist explore the dramatic transitions faced by the graduates of A Better Chance, a programme that has brought black students from economically impoverished backgrounds to some of America's most exclusive prep schools and universities - and ultimately to positions of power and prestige. The text is not only an account of this innovative attempt to transcend racial barriers but also a contribution to the ongoing controversy about the relative importance of race and class in American society.

From the Back Cover:

In this sensitive and engrossing book, a social psychologist and political sociologist report on the early graduates of A Better Chance, a program designed to recruit and prepare minority students for entry into exclusive boarding schools, elite colleges and universities, and ultimately positions of power and prestige.

From Library Journal:

Two psychologists provide a perceptive analysis of the relative importance of race and class in modern American society, based on interviews with 38 graduates of the A Better Chance (ABC) program. Founded in 1963 by 16 elite prep schools, ABC worked to identify talented but poor minority middle school students and give them a chance to attend these schools. According to the authors, the program was quite successful in opening doors for inner-city and rural blacks. Most of the ABC students graduated, attended prestigious universities, and moved into high-status professional positions, thus overcoming class barriers. Nonetheless, they have often been barred from top positions because of continuing institutional racism. An interesting, well-written work despite the limited sample. Recommended for most libraries.
