Comments
"We used to have some blacks here, and we got rid of them," says one Ozark student. In the 1950s, there was a consensus among the whites to run out all of the black population except for one household. In 1995, 2 black junior high school students were beaten when they got off the school bus. The students never made it to school, and the family moved.
