The New Orleans Imperative Monday May 21, 2018

Dr. Walter Stern professor in education at University of Wisconsin-Madison joins us to discuss his recent book, Race and Education in New Orleans: Creating the Segregated City, 1764-1960 (Making of the Modern South). Dr. Stern is a expert on the intersection of race and education in urban United States.

In his book Dr. Stern examines the two centuries of the New Orleans’ education system from the colonial period to the start of school desegregation in 1960. His timely historical analysis reveals that public schools in New Orleans both suffered from and maintained the racial stratification that characterized urban areas for much of the twentieth century.
