In Their Own Words; A Student Appraisal of What Happened After School Desegregation.
Chesler, Mark A.
Reported are the comments of 20 teenagers who, living in rural areas, were among the first Negro students to attend previously all-white schools in the Deep South. Analysis of tape recorded conversations shows that these students felt that the most important element in their adjustment to desegregation was the characteristics of their teachers and principals. Relations with white classmates and with their own communities were also mentioned by the students as critical issues. The document includes three transcripts of interview sessions with the Negro students. (NH)
