Suggests that the principle of "interest convergence" explains the decision in Brown v. Board of Education' and the subsequent development of school desegregation law. Brown must be understood at least in part in terms of its pragmatic value to whites. Subsequent divergences in the interests of blacks and whites point to the need to focus on improving the quality of existing schools.
