Description

In the spring of 1960, unprecedented public hearings were held on segregation and the future of public education. These hearings, convened by John Sibley and the Georgia General Assembly Committee on Schools, offered a rare glimpse into the reactions of southerners - black and white - to the changes wrought by the civil rights movement. Restructured Resistance, the first full-length study of the Sibley Commission, uses newly opened private papers, public records, newspaper reports, and a large number of oral history interviews to examine how the desegregation of public schools in Georgia reflected the evolution of southern society, economics, and politics.
