Abstract:There are five major themes that are discussed related to how they all came together to influence this medium sized Midwestern school district to desegregate its elementary schools. Those themes are the federal shift in policy, interplay of local preferences in federal policy, the Board of Education members' moralistic decision or fear of the federal government, politics of power within the Urbana community, and the myth of the African-American monolithic thought concept. The incredible interplay among the various themes and the individuals that put federal policy into action within the community of Urbana created a very intriguing story of federal policy and local reaction.
