Hoffschwelle assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the program and its larger significance for the status of African Americans and southern race relations in the early twentieth century."--"American Historical Review"" ""Successfully depicts the schools as integral to the African American communities they served in that the schools and what they represented--black agency in providing education for the community--were focal points of African American southern identity and local pride."--"Journal of American Ethnic History"" "" ""The layers of this book are tied together by the extraordinary detail of the archival research. . . . A] tribute to the multi-layered institution of the Rosenwald schools."--"Southern Quarterly" " A] compelling narrative, a breadth of scope, and a sophistication of interpretation that make this a must-read for anyone interested in American cultural history."--"Winterthur Portfolio"""
