The above quotation is part of a statement from social scientists submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court in the Sweatt v. Painter (1950) school desegregation case, a case that has had broad implications for the practice, study, and theory of intergroup relations since the mid-1950s. Because so many of the chapters in this book are intertwined with both the political and empirical aspects of desegregation, a closer look at its history seems in order.
