Currently urban school districts of of our large cities in the United States are experiencing student populations that are overwhelmingly minority. Students are more than likely to be in classrooms where there is very little diversity. It appears that school desegregation and the opportunity for integration that Brown v. Board of Education promised seems to have been put aside. This study provides an opportunity for the marginalized voices of black and white students who were in the Rochester, NY City School District in the 1960s to speak about their experience during the open enrollment and busing process during the 1960s.
