Desegregation And The Law: The Meaning And Effect Of The School Segregation Cases, Blaustein, Albert P. and Clarence Clyde Ferguson, Jr.
3 Desegregation And The Law: The Meaning And Effect Of The School Segregation Cases
Blaustein, Albert P. and Clarence Clyde Ferguson, Jr.
Rutgers University Press 1957 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
The most significant decision ever rendered by an American court. The problems of desegregation touched the lives of every American citizen. The response to it involved political, moral, and social attitudes. But regardless of individual personal feelings about racial segregation, the authors prove there was no discounting the fact that the Supreme Court had spoken. Whatever has been done toward integration was probably done within the legal framework of Brown v. Board of Education. Chipped and stained DJ's spine is sunned, in new mylar, previous owner's name and the date he read it. Underlining. Tiny little footprints on bottom edge. Gray cloth covers of the book have two small faded spots at lower edge. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 333 pages; 30270

Story Of The Negro, Bontemps, Arna
4 Story Of The Negro
Bontemps, Arna
Alfred A. Knopf 1969 5th Edition Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket Illustrated by Raymond Lufkin 
Begins with the first twenty Africans traded to Jamestown colony in 1619. Slavery came later. A rich and colorful picture of the Negro in Africa is background for what was to follow: the boatloads of stolen men brought to the shore of America to be sold as slaves. The long, hard struggle that ensued is a story filled with courage and heroism. Aside from the drama that fills every chapter, there is an inherent dignity through the book--the dignity of a people fighting for freedom....Gibralter library binding, but not an ex-library edition. Initial and date on ffep; tiny scuff at rear joint of spine. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 256 pages; 30893

Gwaltney, John Langston
Random House 1980 0394510178 / 9780394510170 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
About "extraordinary 'ordinary' people; a Black America gifted with double-consciousness, a knowing nation within a largely unknowing nation. This book sings and rages with a feeling tone, powerful, eloquent, and, I hope, disturbing. Paradoxically, it is an exhilarating testament of a people who, in some manner incomprehensible to whites, have survived. Reading it is an experience." --Studs Terkel. Small closed tear on front edge of DJ and a corresponding small bump on front board of book. Scuff and a yellow dot at heel of DJ spine. The Date this book was read written on ffep. Laid in at page 50 is a newspaper article from the Houston Post, January 14, 1985, about black actors in the movies. Part of a large estate of an avid reader and collector of books who obviously read every one of them, the clue being that they all have some amount of marginalia and underlining and the date read on the flypage. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 287 pages; 30225
