The Clinton 12 Remembered

May 21, 2022 @ 6:30 pm

$75.00

In August 1956, The Clinton 12 broke the color barrier in K-12 education in the American South. At that time, future attorney, Jerry Shattuck, was the student body president and captain of the football team at Clinton High School. As such, he had a front-row seat in that time in history. Join us as Jerry recreates that time, the mob violence, the bombing of the high school, and the courageous efforts of local citizens and students who opposed the violence. Most of all, be amazed by the courage of the 12 Black teenage students who simply wanted an education in their hometown.
