A scarce work of Black pedagogy, originally written as Caldwell's master's thesis at Columbia University, in which she argues that the prevailing modes of education fail to meet the needs of Black students. Instead, while acknowledging the distastefulness of the position, she contends that segregated schools remain the best hope for Black self-advancement, and the "best means to the end of segregation and the achievement of group solidarity and world brotherhood."
