You name it, we can’t do it. That was how one African American student at the University of Texas at Austin summed up his experiences in a 1960 newspaper article―some ten years after the beginning of court-mandated desegregation at the school. In this first full-length history of the university’s desegregation, Dwonna Goldstone examines how, for decades, administrators only gradually undid the most visible signs of formal segregation while putting their greatest efforts into preventing true racial integration.
