The 1969-1970 school years represented a turning point in public education in Hope as school integration was implemented across the Hope Public Schools. That critical juncture will be the focus of a panel discussion in a Black History Month presentation by the Hope Public Schools on Thursday, Feb. 21.

“Hope Public Schools: A Turning Point” will be the theme for the evening, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Hope High School Auditorium.

A panel of former Hope school students and former Hope educators who came together to effect the changes in local schools fostered by the integration of public schools in Arkansas will discuss their experiences and answer questions from current social studies classes about that period.
