The Price of Equality

The Price of Equality

Black Loyalty, Self-Help, and the “Right Kind of Citizenship”

(p.13) Chapter One The Price of Equality
Greater than Equal

This chapter discusses how black leaders used postwar social dislocations in negotiating for extended access to segregated schooling. It also emphasizes how state officials had high expectations about black loyalty and what help they would procure in building Negro schools. State leaders regulated the management of black schools by whites with the creation of a supervisory agency called the Division of Negro Education (DNE). This chapter also explores how the black communities worked within the fund's limitations to build “the golden era of Negro schooling” to describe educational equality.
