Author and Speaker, Natalie G. Adams will present
Author and Speaker Natalie G. Adams will present her book, "Just Trying to Have School".
Natalie G. Adams is professor of social and cultural studies in education at the University of Alabama with a joint appointment in New College and the College of Education. James H. Adams (her husband) is professor of instructional systems and workforce development in the College of Education at Mississippi State University. This research project on the desegregation of public schools in Mississippi emanated from their personal participation in school desegregation as students in Louisiana and Mississippi. Natalie was in 3rd grade in 1970 when her rural school district in North Louisiana desegregated its schools. That same year Jim was in 9th grade at DeKalb High when Kemper County (MS) desegregated by the unusual arrangement of having black and white students on the same high school campus but in separate and segregated wings of the school building. Both of their mothers were teachers during this time period, and Jim’s father was a school principal. Prior to becoming professors, Natalie and Jim were public school teachers. Natalie serves on the Board of the David Matthews Center for Civic Life and will be assuming the position of board president in August.
