Professor and author, Dr. Elizabeth McRae, discusses her new book – Mothers of Massive Resistance: White Women and the Politics of White Supremacy. This is a compelling history of the everyday work that white women have undertaken to promote and reinforce racial segregation in America’s public schools.

We talk with Dr. McRae about what her research tells us about contemporary school segregation — and the hope her work gives for it’s dismantling.
