Title:Photo of billboard, "Their Tomorrow Depends on You Today," Mississippians for Public Education, 1964
Date:1964
Description:

Photograph of a billboard seen in Mississippi encouraging white parents to send their children to public school. During the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, some Southern States and communities sought to avoid court-ordered school integration by creating private, segregated schools.

The Civil Rights Digital Library received support from a National Leadership Grant for Libraries awarded to the University of Georgia by the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the aggregation and enhancement of partner metadata.
