"In the years immediately following the Civil War - the formative years for an emerging society of freed African Americans in Mississippi - there was much debate over the general purpose of black schools and who would control them. From Cotton Field to Schoolhouse is the first comprehensive examination of Mississippi's politics and policies of postwar racial education."
