This chapter utilizes the terminology of Horace Mann Bond to demonstrate the resilience of the black professional community that worked across states to upgrade the quality of black schools. It captures the network of black educators as it had unfolded by 1957 and demonstrates the ways the local professor could be enmeshed in a national dialogue saturated with discussions of educational ideas most significant to implement to develop black children. These included ensuring full democratic participation, responding to testing pressures, and recognizing their own roles in overturning a system of oppression. The chapter explains the ways in which the national conversation among black educators created a medium through which the professor could be informed about issues specifically devoted to black children and be given opportunities to discuss how to translate theory into practice.

Keywords:   Horace Mann Bond, black professional community, black schools
