Summary When Louisville's local desegregation plan was overturned in 2007, the people of Jefferson County, Kentucky, faced the question of whether and how to maintain racial diversity in their schools. This debate occurred when scholars, pundits, and much of the public had declared school integration a failed experiment rightfully abandoned. This book uses oral history narratives, newspaper accounts, and other documents, to expose the disappointments of desegregation, draw attention to those who struggled for over 5 decades to bring about equality and diversity, and to highlight the benefits of school integration.
