9780807750162: Troubling the Waters: Fulfilling the Promise of Quality Public Schooling for Black Children

"In an 'either-or' world of structural versus symbolic, liberal versus conservative, and segregated versus desegregated, Jerome Morris elucidates a 'third way' approach to analyzing the plight of African Americans as they seek educational opportunities to enhance their lives. This multisite study of resilience, agency, and community provides a vision reminiscent of the African tradition of Sankofa -to return to the root in order to move forward." -
Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"Perhaps the most important contribution of this welcome book is the way it refocuses our attention on the character of high-achieving schools for urban African American children. It is an impressive addition to a growing body of work attesting to the particular power of social capital in the lives of poor children."-
Charles M. Payne, The University of Chicago
"Troubling the Waters comes at a time when society is demanding of urban schools massive improvements even as it is systematically abandoning these very institutions. This book will become required reading for those who seek insights into achieving the one Great Ideal, as Du Bois put it the abolition of the color line.'-Garrett Albert Duncan, Washington University, St. Louis
"While color-blind conservatives dismiss the significance of race, and race-conscious liberals pursue desegregation remedies within narrower legal parameters, Morris's timely ethnographic study reflects the wisdom of W.E.B. Du Bois: 'The Negro needs neither segregated nor mixed schools. What he needs is education.'"
-Jack Dougherty, Trinity College
Different from numerous anecdotal accounts of urban schools and communities, "Troubling the Waters" is based on more than a decade of empirically based ethnographic and sociological research in schools and communities in St. Louis (which operated the nation's largest voluntary desegregation plan) and Atlanta (a city that abandoned its desegregation plan in the 1970s). As a sociologist and anthropologist of education, Dr. Morris captures the experiences of African American families from a community in St. Louis who chose to send their children to either the neighborhood predominantly Black school, a racially diverse magnet school, or a predominantly White suburban school, and offers a comparative analyses with African American families' from an Atlanta community whose children attended the neighborhood school. Grounded in the political economy of urban schooling, this book counters the views by neoconservatives that racism no longer exists, while simultaneously offering a poignant analysis of the desegregation-only paradigm towards achieving Brown's promises.
