Dear Zora: A Letter to Zora Neale Hurston 50 Years After Brown


by Michelle Fine, Janice Bloom, April Burns, Lori Chajet, Monique Guishard, Yasser Payne, Tiffany Perkins-Munn & Maria Elena Torre — 2005

This article reports on the extensive qualitative and quantitative findings of a multi-method participatory study designed to assess urban and suburban youths' experiences of racial/class justice or injustice in their schools and throughout the nation. Constructed as a letter to Zora Neale Hurston, who was immediately critical of the Brown decision in 1955, the article lays out the victories of Brown and the ongoing struggles, what we call "six degrees of segregation" that identify systematic policies that ensure an opportunity gap. The article theorizes the academic, social and psychological consequences of persistent inequity on youth of color and White American youthall adversely affected by systematic educational inequities that persist 50 years after Brown.
