Black Child-Savers
During the Progressive Era, a rehabilitative agenda took hold of American juvenile justice, materializing as a citizen-and-state-building project and mirroring the unequal racial politics of American democracy itself. Alongside this liberal manufactory of citizens, OCO a parallel structure was enacted: a Jim Crow juvenile justice system that endured across the nation for most of the twentieth century.aIn The Black Child Savers, the first study of the rise and fall of Jim Crow juvenile justice, Geoff Ward examines the origins and organization ofathis separate and unequal juvenile justice system. Ward explores how generations of OC black child-saversOCOamobilized to challengeathe threat to black youth and communityainterests and how this struggle grew aligned with a wider civil rights movement, eventuallyaforcing the formal integration of American juvenile justice. WardOCOs book reveals nearly a century of struggle to build a more democratic model of juvenile justiceOCoan effort that succeeded in part, but ultimately failed to deliver black youth and communityato liberal rehabilitative ideals.aAt once an inspiringastory about theashifting boundaries of race, citizenship, and democracy in America and a crucial look at the nature of racial inequality, The Black Child Savers is a stirring account of the stakes and meaning of social justice.
