A Class of Their Own

Written by civil rights historian Adam Fairclough, this book chronicles the odyssey of black teachers in the South from emancipation in 1865 to integration 100 years later. Built from stories of real men and women, it explores how teachers inspired generations of children, instilling values that nourished racial pride and a desire for equality.
