Description

The two students from Walterboro, South Carolina, wrote to Mayor Kevin White about their experience with integration in their town in 1971 - 1972. Although many were unhappy at first, there was minimal violence and no protests to integration. The two students came up with a list of rules for a "Together School" that they felt would be useful for Boston schools.
