(p.282) Chapter 12 Legacy of Reform
Entangled by White Supremacy

Janet G. Hudson

University Press of Kentucky

In grasping the power of white supremacy, it is important to examine carefully how the whites exercised power and determine the various methods in which the manipulative potential of white supremacy was employed and manifested. The complexity and incidence of white supremacy was made evident through the legislative debate on the funding for educational reforms in 1924. In identifying the means utilized to hide the strategies and motives from rivals, it is important to account for the subtle details of the various legislative machinations. The most apparent manifestation of white supremacy remained in how the school system was segregated and how restrictions were intended for black schools. Attaining greater educational opportunity for the whites in South Carolina would thus entail asserting how the funding reforms would threaten white supremacy. This chapter identifies the important events in coming up with an appropriate system that would foster reform.
