Pre-integration memories linger for black Anderson County student

-A A +A

By John Cunningham

My story is about where I went to high school. To visit this, we have to go back to 1951, my first year in high school.
It was September 1951 when the black high school students who lived in the city limits of Lawrenceburg were put on a school bus and transported to Lincoln Institute High School, located in Lincoln Ridge, about two miles from Simpsonville.
Lincoln opened its doors in 1912; we have just finished 100 years. All black people who got out of high school before 1962 finished at Lincoln Institute, and the Lock Road kids went to Simmons in Versailles.
