In The School that Cared, P. Kamara Sekou Collins examines the struggles that African-American students encounter within the public school system in Cincinnati, Ohio. Collins explores blacks and the arena of education during the 19th and 20th century, which led to the implementation of alternative strategies, such as the development of contemporary school communities, in order to provide a quality education for African-American students. As a contemporary continuation of this gallant historical education struggle, Collins highlights the Marva Collins Preparatory School of Cincinnati.
