Long100313“The 50th Anniversary of the Integration of Salem Schools, A Look Back”

John D. Long, Director of the Salem Museum and Historical Society, spoke on the integration of the City of Salem schools fifty years ago this fall.  The process of desegregation in Salem was remarkably easy, he says, generating little opposition and being completed eventually two years early.

Professor Long also invited Rotarians to join the Salem Historical Society for a special program October 21 commemorating the event at Andrew Lewis Middle School
