New York: Farrar. Straus & Giroux, (1966). First edition. Foreword by Ralph McGill. Memoir covering the period after the Supreme Court's 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education when, in 1956, federal judge Robert Taylor ordered Clinton High School in Tennessee to desegregate with "all deliberate speed." Margaret Vance Anderson (1917-2008) was a business and typing teacher at Clinton at the time who soon became the unofficial guidance counselor for the “Clinton 12” – the first twelve Black students to attend the school. She later earned degrees to formalize that position. Her series of articles for The New York Times Magazine written over a period of eight years formed the basis for this memoir in which Anderson often lets students, both Black and White, speak for themselves as she details her experiences and those of her students in the decade following desegregation. Fine in near fine dust jacket with few tiny nicks to head of spine. Scarce.
