The Topography of Race

The Topography of Race

(p.117) Chapter Six The Topography of Race
Why Rural Schools Matter

Mara Casey Tieken

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter examines racial segregation of schools in the South. Segregation ensured that black and white children learned different curricula from different textbooks, classrooms, and teachers, giving many black children an education and training designed to breed docility and teach limited vocational skills. The social effects of segregation prevented the creation of cross-racial relationships which foster social mobility and build a more unified society, preserving both economic inequity and social division.

Keywords:   racial segregation, social effects, cross-racial relationships, social mobility, economic inequity, social division
