This is a historical investigation designed to analyze a private Christian school’s intentional efforts to significantly diversify its student body after decades in existence. More specifically, given the history of private education and of race relations in the United States, it is vital to discover how existing power dynamics between white mainstream and marginalized cultures might be embedded and reflected in this initiative and the ways in which these power dynamics informed this seemingly progressive reform.
