Review quote

"For students of race and culture, this book contains vital information and analysis on the origins of a multicultural society... Lindsey shows the complicated way that one black institution, while still under white control, devised to manage the education and socialization of African and Native American students, not for their needs but in the interests of the broader Anglo-American society." -- American Historical Reviewshow more
