Once the roof was torn down the rubble was hauled off. In early 2003 only a little debris and a lot of memories remained.

Stories of school desegregation are ultimately about people--teachers who work in the schools and the students who are there to learn. This book focuses on the front line faculty and their recollection of the effort to desegregate faculty in Austin's schools during 1964-1971 in compliance with the Brown v. Board of Education, Topeka, Kansas Supreme Court ruling. This event had an enduring personal and professional impact on the Austin teachers that lives on in their memory and is now recounted in detail for the first time.
