The Role of the Schools in a Social Revolution


by Benjamin E. Mays - 1964

The author laments the lack of collaboration by the schools and the educational enterprise in achieving desegregation. Rooted in the Judaeo-Christian tradition and the ideals of the Declaration of Independence, the revolution against racial discrimination is on behalf of the American Dream. As such, it is everybody's concern, not just that of Negroes. Whereas we once wondered if the schools dared to build a new social order, the author now wonders if they dare to participate in what is both inevitable and morally right.
