Calvin and Naomi Davis oral history interview, 2004 November 23
- Creation: 2004-11-23
Calvin and Naomi Davis describe their experiences as students, teachers, parents, and grandparents in the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school system, and reflect on the significant changes in education during their lifetimes. They discuss both the challenges and successes of the integration of Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools during the 1960s and 1970s, and express concern about the possibility of resegregation in the future due to judicial changes. Mr. and Mrs. Davis perceive the major threat to school integration as a shift away from public support of integration policies, which they attribute to changing demographics caused by the influx of people from other parts of the country into the Charlotte area.
