A Girl Stands at the Door: The Generation of Young Women Who Desegregated America's Schools - A new history of school desegregation in America, revealing how girls and women led the fight for interracial education

 

The struggle to desegregate America's schools was a grassroots movement, and young women were its vanguard. In the late 1940s, parents began to file desegregation lawsuits with their daughters, forcing Thurgood Marshall and other civil rights lawyers to take up the issue and bring it to the Supreme Court. After the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, girls far outnumbered boys in volunteering to desegregate formerly all-white schools.
