REMEMBER : THE JOURNEY TO
New York : Houghton Mifflin,
IL 3-6, RL 2.4
before the law was changed, there were many schools that did not allow
African Americans attend. There were separate schools for them.
Usually those schools were inferior and had little to offer the students.
In 1954, a law was passed that forced white schools to open their doors
to everyone. A few courageous students faced prejudice and attacks
to pave the way for others to follow. This is the story of school
integration. Told through photographs and headlines of the day, this
is a powerful story of hatred and hope.
Discrimination in education.
African Americans -- Education.
United States -- Race relations.
