    COLORED SCHOOLS

    And their associated churches

    Harford County was the nation's most tardy school district to remove segregated schools, not being fully integrated until the 1965-66 school
    year even though the Supreme Court had ruled on
    BROWN V. THE BOARD OF EDUCATION in 1954. 
    For each of 12 school years, one additional grade was integrated.

    The Historical Society of Harford County has published four
    Harford Historical Bulletins 
    on pertinent subjects. Two (#101, 102) discuss the segregated, colored schools of the county, and two (#105, 107) discuss the desegregation process that occurred here.
