Title:Oral history interview with Leroy Miller, June 8, 1998
Date:1998 June 8

This interview is relatively thick with the day-to-day details of high school administration but should prove useful for researchers examining how black education professionals weathered the desegregation process. While many black teachers and administrators lost their positions during desegregation, Miller fielded a number of offers of leadership posts. The interview is a look at some of the smaller, on-the-ground changes that occurred during integration in Charlotte, from the pairing of black and white administrators to black students taking up cigarette smoking on school grounds.

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.
