Ingrid_Doweary: I like the concept of your topic, Khathu.
alt: Khathu, on AA's in Public Education, will you explore the differences between AA's in the North and AA's in the South? .. from the aspect of segregation and de facto segregation
Ingrid_Doweary: Are you covering community history or are you covering urban and rural settings?
Khathu: because of the time limite it will be a general overview
Ingrid_Doweary: Great idea Alt. I certainly observed a difference among my friends on the high school level.
alt: I know... that is a very HUGE subject we have family educated here in Ohio that had to go South to teach because the 'integrated schools' in the North weren't hiring AA Teachers. of course this was before the 60's
daviss: I have a copy of a letter the supt of a school sent to my uncle telling him that the negroes are messing themselves up trying to intergrate and that if he were him he should go to cali to teach This was in Texas
Ingrid_Doweary: Interesting in both cases.
