New Kent School and the George W. Watkins School: From Freedom of Choice to Integration

looks at the 1968 Supreme Court ruling that ended a decade of resistance to school desegregation in the South (1955-1964) and triggered massive integration of schools (1968-1973). The New Kent and George W. Watkins schools illustrated typical characteristics of a southern rural school system that achieved token desegregation following the Brown decision.
