A MOST TOLERANT LITTLE TOWN The Explosive Beginning of School Desegregation

by | Read by Janina Edwards, Megan Tusing

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Janina Edwards and Megan Tusing share the narration of this audiobook about an almost forgotten uprising over desegregation. In 1956, the town of Clinton, Tennessee, became one of the first schools to combine both Black and white students. What followed was a brutal series of death threats, beatings, cross burnings, and even the presence of the National Guard. Edwards and Tusing deftly deliver the often emotionally charged testimonies and heartrending details from both Black and white residents of Clinton. With their thoughtful performances, Edwards and Tusing capture the fear and confusion, along with the desire of the townspeople to hide what happened.
