Reparation and Reconciliation

How did efforts to shift racial boundaries through interracial education fail? This chapter introduces the 19th century Anti-Caste Movement and its goal of revising the social order such that – through promoting colorblind ideology – race would no longer structure the American status hierarchy. I provide a theoretical introduction to the study of racial boundaries and provide a multi-level framework for analyzing the types of racial boundary processes that happen at the level of individual interactions, within organizations, through inter-organizational negotiation, and at the level of law-making and states. I then lay out my argument for studying integration as an organizational achievement and provide an overview of the subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   Anti-Caste movement, integration, segregation, interracial coeducation
