dc.description.abstract“It is not just the white man who does not know the Negro's name, however; the Negro does not know either. . .the controversy over name is bound up with the most fundamental question of identity: the flight from blackness, the hatred of self, the yearning to be white. . .” (Powell 1973, 22). The purpose of this qualitative study is to analyze the identify struggles of African American students from 1950-1968. I used empirical evidence based on the events and my experiences expressed through the realities of my identity struggles during the Civil Rights Movements. The analytical descriptions and interpretations are naturally occurring behaviors in the struggle for social justice and educational equality. I based my research on the question: what are the identity struggles of African Americans in Desegregated Schools during the Civil Rights Movement?eng
