Title:Hyde County school boycott

Ten years after the Supreme Court ruled that segregated schools were unconstitutional, schools in Hyde County, North Carolina, remained segregated. When the county was forced to desegregate the schools in 1968, the all-white school board decided to close the historically black schools. A yearlong protest revolutionized race relations in the small, rural town, and changed the face of education for its students.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.
