TITLE: Three to Get Ready: The Education of a White Family in Inner City Schools by Lois Mark Stalvey (Paperback)

PRICE: $5.95
CONDITION: Very Good.  Some shelf/handling wear.

SYNOPSIS: How do our schools take bright, active, ordinary children, who happen to be poor and black, and turn them into ill-educated and violent delinquents? Lois Stalvey’s book will show you how it is done. In 1962, the Stalveys, a middle-class white family, moved from Omaha to an integrated urban neighborhood in Philadelphia, where the three children enrolled in public schools. For twelve years, Lois Stalvey watched her children and their predominantly African American classmates as both a parent and a volunteer teacher. What she saw was shocking. When her own children misbehaved or had learning problems, they were granted patience and understanding. In contrast, African American children were treated, by both black and white teachers, as naughty, dangerous, obstinate, or stupid. Though more than twenty years have passed since the first publication of this book, the tragedy is that the message Lois Stalvey shares with her readers can only be more important today. “Why bother moving children’s bodies around to achieve integrated education,” she asks, “if, like the children in our school, they cannot escape teachers with segregating eyes?” 313 pages. ISBN: 0299153940

TITLE: Continuities in Popular Culture: The Present in the Past and the Past in the Present and Future by Ray B. Browne & Ronald J. Ambrosetti (Paperback)

PRICE: $10.00
CONDITION: Very Good.  Some shelf/handling wear. Writing on back page.

SYNOPSIS: The humanities are the strongest dynamic that runs from the past into the future. Throughout history, except for the past one hundred fifty years, the strongest element in the humanities has been the culture of the folk. Now it is the everyday culture of a democratic society—popular culture, a key to people’s understanding themselves and their society. These sixteen essays by leading popular culture scholars demonstrate how elements in our everyday life flourished in the past, came to flower today, and will continue to shape us in the future. 268 pages. ISBN: 0879725931
