Back 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.
Non fiction SUBJECTS:     School integration.
                        Discrimination in education.
                        African Americans -- Education.
                        United States -- Race relations.
