 About the Book 

A city-wide school board election would elect four new members. Everyone expected business as usual: south side conservatives would pick their candidates, who would win over those selected by middle class black and white liberals. Few people would get interested in the election, least of all the black residents on the north side who wouldnt care enough about their childrens fate to show up at the polls.It didnt quite happen that way. heres the story of how it all began, what happened in the campaign and afterwards, who won and why and how, and what the election results meant for the City of St. Louis
