Unheralded Integrators to Discuss School IntegrationOctober 3, 2019
On September 6, 1965, thirteen Black students stepped onto the campus of Lanier Jr. High School for Boys in Macon, Georgia to begin the 1965-66 school year. The school built in 1948 for the education of white boys braced itself for a historical moment. The thirteen youngsters were the first of their race to enroll in this junior high school. Across Bibb County that morning over 240 Black students attended classes for the first time with white students.
