The first public showing of Reading, ‘Riting and Reorganization in Jefferson County, Missouri will be held at a luncheon program on Friday, September 4, 11:30 a.m. in the Viking Room at Jefferson College in Hillsboro. The cost of the lunch is $5 per person, payable at the door. Advance reservations are required.
Reading, ‘Riting and Reorganization is an oral history program about two important events in the history of public education after World War II and how they affected public schools in Jefferson County. The first event was the state-mandated consolidated and reorganization of rural one room schools into school districts. The second was the integration of public schools after the 1954 Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education.
Nineteen people who experienced these events firsthand as students, teachers or administrators in Jefferson County schools were interviewed, and their recollections are the focus of this fifty minute video program.
To reserve your seats, please call or e-mail Christine Merseal at the Northwest branch, Jefferson County Library, 636-677-8186 by noon on August 31. This is the first in a planned series of oral history programs documenting the history and development of Jefferson County after World War II. The History Video Project is a collaborative venture of Jefferson County Library with JCTV and the Jefferson County History Center at Jefferson College, with assistance from other public libraries and historical societies in Jefferson County. Major funding was provided by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant made available through the Institute for Museum & Library Servies, and administered by the Missouri State Library.
