White discrimination in provision of black education: Plantations and towns

Neil Canaday and Robert Tamura ()

Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, 2009, vol. 33, issue 7, 1490-1530

Abstract: We present a model of public provision of education for blacks in two discriminatory regimes, white plantation controlled, and white yeoman-town controlled. We show that the ability to migrate to a non-discriminating district constrains the ability of both types of regimes to discriminate. The model produces time series of educational outcomes for whites and blacks that mimic the behavior seen in Post Reconstruction South Carolina to the onset of the Civil Rights Act. It also fits the Post World War II black-white income differentials.
