Here is the oral history of a southern school system that implemented desegregation with quiet dignity. In the struggle for civil rights, calm compliance is rarely documented, but Adams and DeBlack have recorded peace in the words of the educators and students who created it.

Among the many changes that have occurred in our country in the last forty years, few have been as significant as those heralded by the Supreme Court s decision in the Brown vs. the Board of Education case in 1954. By declaring racially segregated public schools unconstitutional, the court set in motion forces that resulted in the dismantling of the legal structure of Jim Crowism. The impact of the Brown decision was national in scope, but in no other region was its impact more far-reaching and traumatic than in the South. In Arkansas, as in other Southern states, racial segregation was not merely a well-established way of life, it was firmly imbedded in law.While school desegregation generated much noise and some violence elsewhere in the South, the city of Fayetteville, Arkansas, confronted the issue and resolved it with a good deal of dignity and grace, becoming the first Southern city to accommodate the Brown decision.Through this collection of interviews with those who were involved in the desegregation process - students, teachers, administrators, civic leaders, and members of local groups - we learn of the determination of citizens to obey the law of the land and to see that freedom and equality took priority over their commitment to a school system that patently discriminated against one group of citizens.
