  • Abstract
    James Moore, who has lived his entire life in Prospect, North Carolina, in Robeson County, reflects on some of the conflicts there during the desegregation process. He had a firsthand view of anti-integration sentiment when he drove a school bus for a few months in Prospect, and witnessed local Native Americans' determination not to allow black students into their schools.
