Desegregation Project

In 1961, I, Equilla Banks Webb, participated in the desegregation of East Side Junior High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.  A total of 25 African-American students participated in the desegregation of other junior high schools in the city and Dr. Laverne Bell-Tolliver, also a participant, has interviewed us for a book she is writing to be published in 2016.

There will be a panel discussion held at Central High School on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm with representation from each of the junior high schools.

I have uploaded copies of the flyer and program in the Files and Music Section.
