This Senior Independent Study is an alternative proposal. The written portion investigates the role of a religious organization, the Episcopal Society for Cultural and Racial Unity, in promoting the integration of the Lovett School, a private school in Atlanta, Georgia. This essay also explores themes like white flight and the desegregation of the Atlanta Public School system. The second part is a curriculum designed for eleventh grade students. This curriculum includes lessons on Brown v. Board of Education and related cases, comparison between public and private desegregation, and school funding.
