Sorry, Thurgood Marshall: Girls Integrated Schools 17

During the earliest days of desegregation, black girls outnumbered boys as volunteers to attend all-white schools by a wide margin. Rachel Devlin joins guest host John McCaa to tell the stories of these Civil Rights pioneers. Her new book is called “A Girl Stands at the Door: The Generation of Young Women Who Desegregated America’s Schools” (Basic Books). She’ll talk more about it tonight at Interrabang Books in Dallas.
