Paul F. Lawrence, Associate Superintendent for Higher Education, California Department of Education, speaking before the California Council of Social Studies on February 26, 1966 regarding the lack of African-American representation in American classrooms. He is introduced by Janet Ross, Historian of the Council. This program concludes the series from the 1966 Conference of the California Council for the Social Studies. The annual conference of the California Council for the Social Studies was held in late February 1966 in Asilomar, California, and had the theme “New Directions in the Social Studies”. This conference was significant because social studies teachers found themselves in the midst of an educational revolution, due to the National Defense of Education Act to include the social sciences in education, and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act providing funds for curriculum innovation and classroom hardware.
