At 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17 in the Tupelo Room of Barnard Observatory, Zoë Burkholder presents “An African American Dilemma: A History of School Integration and Civil Rights in the North.” This study considers what is unique about Black struggles for school integration in the North, how these struggles differed from those in the South, and why these regional distinctions matter in order to shed light on the complex relationship between school integration and the larger Black freedom struggle. Burkholder is an historian of education, professor of educational foundations, and the founding director of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Education Project at Montclair State University.
