Re: “The roots of Little Rock's segregated neighborhoods

I found this article VERY informative. Being a native here in Little Rock I've seen the aftermath of the desegregation efforts. Though I had the pleasure of be raised in two areas:

The Highland Court area (north of 12th Street, east of Jefferson),
and The State Fairgrounds (south of Roosevelt, east of Summit, West of Wolfe)

The schools I attended were desegregated for the most part. (Fair Park, Bale, Henderson) But after the consolidation of 1987, which brought Fair and McClellan into the LRSD, both of those schools became predominately non-white. (the feeder schools for Parkview were forced to feed the other four LRSD High Schools) Students didn't want attend Fair and McClellan, making Hall and Central Athletic juggernauts after 2000. Now the talks of closing Fair (the youngest LRSD High School) and McClellan, and building a new high school in Southwest Little Rock....smh...what a waste of money...
