Examines how the school desegregation policy in the United States challenged several long-held views of presidents John F. Kennedy, Richard M. Nixon and Lyndon B. Johnson. Kennedy as a reluctant champion of civil rights; Johnson as steadfastly liberal on race; Nixon as captive to white backlash and a politically inspired southern strategy; Three themes which permeated school desegregation policy during the 1960s.
