For SPOHP's Summer 2013 Oral History Seminar class. Because she and other African American children were bussed out of town for high school, Rossie Thomas’s schooldays ran from “‘dark-thirty’ to ‘dark-thirty’” leaving her to read tattered, hand-me-down textbooks and complete assignments by lamplight at night. In this podcast, Thomas discusses this period in her life as well as other experiences in education in the segregated South.
