May 25, 2021 (Newswire.com) –
Fulton Books author Dr. J. Mack Hargis, former teacher, principal, school board member, and educational consultant, has completed his most recent book “It Isn’t Always Black Or White.” It is a potent discussion of the integration process in the public schools of Nashville illustrated by his personal journey, insight, and firsthand experience witnessing the impact of integration on educators, students, and the community.
Dr. Hargis writes, “The Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) integration was a complicated process. Though a plan had been implemented in 1970, this plan was reversed by a higher court in 1981 resulting in school closings, teacher transfers, and students bussed miles from home just days before school started. These unexpected changes put burdens on principals, teachers, and staff, as they did their best in a time of uncertainty.
These stories, many never shared before, took place during the court-ordered integration plan, and the process of trying to educate students despite the chaos. They examine the experience of combining students from differing cultures while striving for positive results for all. These differences were not always black or white. Dr. Mack Hargis, former teacher, coach, principal, and school board member, offers an insider’s perspective on the path to the MNPS’s integration.”
Published by Fulton Books, Dr. J. Mack Hargis’ book is an eye-opening manuscript that lets readers get a closer and more personal look recounting the process that transpired during Nashville’s integration plan. It brings light upon the changes, the complications, and the feats that arose in those times of challenge.
Readers who wish to experience this brilliant work can purchase “It Isn’t Always Black Or White” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.
