A GIRL STANDS AT THE DOOR The Generation of Young Women Who Desegregated America's Schools

by | Read by Robin Miles

History • 12.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Robin Miles narrates this history of the desegregation of education in America, which is largely a story of girls and young women whom history has pretty much ignored. Miles's portrayal of Lucille Bluford illustrates her persistence and dedication as she applied 11 times to the graduate journalism program at the University of Missouri and then sued them, only to be told that black students were restricted to a separate school that had no journalism program. Miles portrays the conviction of many of the girls who were plaintiffs in the landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education--as well as some of the plaintiffs whose cases preceded, and were overturned by, Brown. Miles adopts an easy, conversational manner, making this scholarly work accessible.
