Atlanta Education System 1950-2000

This is a photo taken in 1972 at Highland Elementary School. They are protesting forced busing in Atlanta. There was huge protest by the White community in Atlanta against busing children between schools. As this photo shows, much of this anger was aimed against the NAACP, who were the main group working to enforce integration through methods such as busing.
