Law Touched Our Hearts: A Generation Remembers Brown v. Board of Education
Mildred Wigfall Robinson and Richard J. Bonnie
Racially segregated high school proms are in the news. The coverage superficially depicts these incidents as vestiges of racism in rural Southern school districts. I moved away from the South over thirty years ago and I know there is far more to the story. There was no media scrutiny of the proms in 1971 when I graduated from Bertie Senior High School in Windsor, North Carolina.
