Erica Sterling is a PhD candidate in Harvard’s history department studying race, philanthropy, and educational inequality in twentieth-century US history. Her dissertation examines post-Brown v. Board collaborations between local, state, and federal policymakers, philanthropists, and community organizers as they experimented with alternative models of K-12 schooling in Boston, Ma, Berkeley, Ca, and Washington D.C. from 1954 to 1993. The dissertation charts a parallel narrative to school desegregation politics, demonstrating how public-private partnerships charted the course of US education policy in the latter half of the twentieth century.
