Dallas Independent School District Announces Plan to Desegregate Schools Ca. 1961

Unknown - 1961
Rate this:
Despite the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Dallas was slow to desegregate its school system. In 1961, the Dallas Independent School District implemented a "Stairstep Plan" that would gradually introduce African-American students. The plan, however, still left the schools highly segregated. In 1970, Sam Tasby filed a lawsuit against the Dallas Independent School District, after his son was denied admission to an all-white school. As a result, the school district was handed a desegregation order that was not lifted until 2003.
