Diving deep into the history of Yazoo City, MS, David Rae Morris revisits the mainstream account of the city’s integration of its public schools, decades after it was federally mandated. Morris uses his father’s account as a blueprint and expands it with eyewitness testimonies of the racial tension and violence that history tried to erase.
