Shooting Past the Color Line


Author(s):
Abstract:
In Gastonia, the year 1967 brought an end to school segregation and the merger of historically black Highland High School with all-white Ashley High School. Grundy relates how basketball players from the two schools overcame their differences, worked together, shared skills and ideas, and went on to win the 4A state basketball championship.
