Perspectives: Desegregation of Leon County Schools

Aug 31, 2017

It’s been 50 years since the last segregated Leon County public school closed its doors (the old all-black Lincoln High School in Frenchtown).  How did school integration take place in Florida’s Capital City and what has changed since then?  To discuss the issue in the run-up to a special series of WFSU news reports on the subject is this Perspectives featuring Leon County Schools Administrator C.B. “Rick” Williams, one of the first three African-American students to enter the formerly all-white Rickards High School in 1965, along with WFSU Reporter Kate Payne.
