Desegregation http://wknofm.org en 'The Memphis 13' Premieres On 50th Anniversary Of School Desegregation http://wknofm.org/post/memphis-13-premieres-50th-anniversary-school-desegregation <p>On October 3<sup>rd</sup>, 1961, thirteen African-American children walked into formerly all-white schools in Memphis. Unlike other cities, Memphis schools desegregated without violence; and first-graders&mdash;not high-schoolers&mdash;broke the color line. There&rsquo;s a new documentary out about the event. Reverend Samuel &quot;Billy&quot; Kyles is in the movie. Kyles remembers bringing his daughter to the doors of Bruce Elementary School 50 years ago today.</p> Mon, 03 Oct 2011 06:00:00 +0000 Eleanor Boudreau 1627 at http://wknofm.org 'The Memphis 13' Premieres On 50th Anniversary Of School Desegregation
