A CONVERSATION WITH LOCAL PARTICIPANTS IN NASHVILLE’S DESEGREGATION STORY

Moderator: Ansley Erickson, Teachers College, Columbia University

Listen in on a conversation among participants from Nashville’s 43-year-long school desegregation case, Kelley v. Metropolitan Board of Education, as they reflect on the struggles and accomplishments of desegregation here. From 1957, when Nashville implemented token, grade-per-year desegregation, through the contentious 1971 implementation of extensive busing for school desegregation that made the district one of the most statistically desegregated school systems in the country, to the 1998 declaration of “unitary status” and the ending court supervision, Nashville exemplified key phases of the American desegregation story. Nashville’s example helps us consider the particular opportunities and challenges of metropolitan city-county school districts and the complex experience and legacy of the desegregation era. Participants include an attorney in the desegregation case, a school board member, and a former Nashville student and teacher. The session will take the form of a roundtable discussion among the participants, and then opened to the audience for Q&A.
