9781439240922: Education and the American Dream: The Allen-White High School Story 1905-1970

Education and the American Dream: The Allen-White Story 1905-1970 by Evelyn C. Robertson Jr. presents an historic and inspiring chronicle that describes the struggles, challenges, sacrifices, and triumphs of one Tennessee community in search of a common vision in education and achievement. It shows how from meager beginnings Whiteville, Tennessee became a model of success in education for African American students in the earlier twentieth Century. The road to educational achievement during the nearly seventy years covered in Robertson's account was ardous, but with leadership and cooperation supportive parents and citizens attained the dream of a better education for their children and set the stage for future success in African American communities throughout the United States. Written in clear and illuminating prose, Education and the American Dream: The Allen-White Story 1905-1970 demonstrates how thinking outside the box about education can payoff in big ways for students and communities.
