Hi everyone, This week I present you with a set of mostly depressing pieces—but end with a crowd-pleaser. First, some pieces about integration in schools. Even very recent history can be helpful in achieving clarity on contemporary debates on race in schools. Find some links below that reflect on Brown v. Board, school integration in modern times, and an extended look at a particular middle school in Brooklyn. The current underneath all these pieces is that school integration in the US never really landed on its feet.
