The integration of Murrah High School will be the subject of a panel discussion to be held at Millsaps College in the Recital Hall of the Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex.
Teena Horn, Alan Huffman, and John Griffin Jones, editors of Lines Were Drawn: Remembering Court-Ordered Integration at a Mississippi High School, will participate in this
discussion, along with former classmates Robert Gibbs and Margie Cooper Pearson.
The book features recollections from more than 50 students and teachers about the integration of Murrah, beginning in 1969.
The panel discussion will begin at 5:30 pm on Thursday, April 21. Lemuria Books will have copies of the book available for purchase at the book signing after the lecture.
There will be a reception at 4:30 p.m., prior to the program.
