Framing Desegregation: The Political Mission of the Southern Education Reporting Service

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Following the 1954 Brown v. Board decision, Southern newspaper editors sought to control news coverage of the South's response to the school desegregation mandate and thereby frame the political narrative, in both South and North. The Southern Education Reporting Service, which was underwritten by an arm of the Ford Foundation and gathered news from 17 Southern states, purported to tell the desegregation story objectively and without concern for the politics of race. This paper draws upon extensive research in the SERS archives at Tulane and manuscript collections in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina to examine the editors' use of objectivity as a political tool and, ironically, the activism entailed in a political project committed to objectivity.
