The Civil War, with the potential to change the racial time, fell short of it's goal. Even after the Emancipation Proclamation and the civil rights amendments, racism remained intact.

The right to equal educational opportunities has been at the forefront of the civil rights struggles in the United States and remains so today.

The struggle for access to education, regardless of race or ethnicity has been a seminal part of American history.
