This book presents four interpretations of desegregation to expanding school choice produced by four different discourses - Traditional Americanism, African-American Centralism, Colorblind Individualism and American Collectivism. To be constantly aware of multiple interpretations of racial issues requires an acculturation into a larger background set of ideas for which new, and hopefully better solutions to racial conflicts can be conceived, developed and implemented.
