Email this review


A charting of the problem, challenge, psychology and thinking integral to the decision abolishing segregation in our schools stresses our actions as prime factors in determining a future with true unity. First exploring the factors that have conditioned man's thinking and the dire results today with a ""white democracy"" only, there is the conclusion that true democracy demands quality and goodness but cannot impose them on people; it can only safeguard through a Constitution with growth potentials. But where inner conflicts have created exploitation, there are now the slow steps in the opposite direction, the small things each person can do, and practical suggestions for North and South alike. A short book and Must reading for all who believe democracy can work.
