About the Author

June Manning Thomas is the Mary Frances Berry Distinguished University Professor Emerita of Urban Planning at the University of Michigan.


Now, as we prepare to observe the seventieth anniversary of Brown, June manning Thomas, in Struggling to Learn, adds to the record a thoroughly researched and carefully organized story of school desegregation in her home state of South Carolina and particularly in her hometown of Orangeburg.--Jan Bates Wheeler "Journal of American History"

'[F]irsts' have long been a focus of desegregation history, but Struggling to Learn is unusual for the sheer number of points where Thomas is able to weave her and her family's story together with the broader currents of civil rights and desegregation. [...]Thomas has an approachable style that makes Struggling to Learn an engaging read.-- "Journal of Southern History"

Making effective use of archival materials and interviews, [Thomas] identifies the educators, religious leaders, and educators who laid the foundation for desegregation and who provided Black Americans with a vision of a better future. As Thomas deftly intertwines these narratives, she also discusses ways in which Black activists led protests and pushed for legislation in spite of the injustices imposed by the dominant class of white South Carolinians. [...] A powerful, enlightening read; highly recommended for readers interested in the civil rights movement, the struggle for educational equity, and South Carolina history.-- "Library Journal"
