Cleveland Schools Must Desegregate

Chicot Memorial

(Cleveland, MS)– The Cleveland School District has been ordered by a federal court to consolidate its majority black secondary schools with historical white schools, ending a five decade legal battle to desegregate schools in the 12,000 population city in north Mississippi. The court’s ruling will result in the immediate and effective desegregation of the district’s middle school and high school program for the first time in the district’s more than century long history.
