The Shame of the Nation (Random House, 2005) is a haunting journey through the classrooms in which children of color are contained, concealed, and isolated from American society. It offers a dramatic challenge to the nation, and to all of us, to reconceive and carry out an honorable struggle to fulfill at last the promise made in 1954 to end apartheid schooling in America.
This event is co-sponsored by the Dean’s office and the Children’s Defense Fund.
