This book recounts the desegregation process in Gainesville. Gains, as well as losses, by African Americans are analyzed through artifacts and interviews with those who were involved. A thorough study of the history of Gainesville and Hall County Schools, particularly E.E. Butler High School, as a microcosm of the effects of African American school closings in the 1960s and 1970s, will lead to a greater understanding of the African American experience in the desegregation of American public schools.
