Recollections of the desegregation of Kingsport schools

Today's Kingsport paper (registration required) has this interesting article ("Blacks describe difficult first years of desegregation," 5/16/04) with first-person recollections of the desegregation of the public schools there in the 1960s. The first black students entered Dobyns-Bennett High School in 1965 - 11 years after the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education.
