About this product
- DescriptionThomas J. Rusk Elementary School, in Nacogdoches, Texas, houses a carved stone dedication plaque in its gymnasium's entryway.It reads This gymnasium is dedicated to the White children of Nacogdoches. In those days, Nacogdoches was unapologetically segregated. It was a matter of t only custom but also of law. In respect to segregation, Nacogdoches was little different than other communities in the Jim Crow South. Its location in Texas, however, helped to obscure this fact. While the US Supreme Courtended segregation in public schools on May 17, 1954, Nacogdoches schools were t forced to integrate until 1970. This book is comprised of essays that paint a portrait of Nacogdoches both before and after integration. Readers will find a collection of essays written by scholars but also by people who have firsthandexperience in conflicts that arose in Nacogdoches after 1970. The essays focus upon both the objective, measurable dimensions of race in Nacogdoches, but also upon the actual lived experiences of AfricanAmericans in rural East Texas.
