Dallas, Texas, Factors Affecting School Desegregation. Field Reports on Desegregation in the South, FR7.
Carmack, William R.; Freedman, Theodore
This report of a field study describes the step-by-step events and strategies to desegregate the public schools in Dallas, Texas, in September 1961. The legal background, the preparation and campaign for public approval, the desegregation plan in operation, and the response of the press are all discussed. To a degree there was resentment on the part of Negroes that they did not participate in planning the desegregation, and annoyance at the complicated regulations which discouraged so many of them.
