Full Text of the Excerpt
I am a product of
desegregation. I attended the first part of my educational public school
education in a segregated school and my sixth grade year I attended a
desegregated school and was one of three minorities at the school. The
following year we were joined by a few more and the following year a few
more and by the time I got to high school, I was in a totally
desegregated school. It's been a learning experience for me
as well as it has helped me to help the children that I work with today.
Unfortunately to say, at times I can feel a resurgence of racism of that
old coming back out.
