Summary
"This first collection of black psychologist Dr. Kenneth B. Clark's body of work over a half-century reveals his insight into the fields of social science, education, politics, and the law. He tells the inside story of the ground-breaking studies he made of black public school children, showing they lacked self-esteem because they were treated separately and differently than their white counterparts. His social science papers were the basis for the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark decision of May 17, 1954, that state-sponsored segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution."--Jacket
