Title:Oral history interview with Betty and Jake Hill
Date:1988 Nov. 7

Oral history in which Jake and Betty Hill describe discrepancies between all-white and all-black schools, including allocation of funds, materials, and equipment. They recall the transition to integrated school personnel, how the first black personnel were selected, the effects of integration on the socialization and education of the students, and how it affected parent participation. They also recall the changes in school administration once federal aid was received and after integration, teaching conditions after integration, and new programs started.

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.
