Conclusion (Part 7):
Reflections on Integration – In a Revolution

Larry & Linda Jagours and Deborah Smith-Davis-Guillory were three of the nine students who switched from Doty High School to McKinney High School in 1964 at the onset of integration in public schools.

“I didn’t know I was in a revolution…until I thought back.”
