CW: Remembering the Clinton 12

In 1956, twelve African American teens made history by becoming the first students to desegregate an all white school in the south. They were met with a lot of harsh racism everyday they walked to school. Two years after the desegregation, Clinton High School was bombed. JoAnn Allen Boyce, one of the Clinton 12 talks about her experience during that time. To honor the Clinton 12, there will be a commemorative walk and program happening on Monday, August 26 at 10am in Clinton Tennessee at the McAdoo Cultural Center.
