Princeton Plan Panel Discussion
October 18, 2018

This panel discussion, in conjunction with exhibitions at Updike Farmstead and Princeton Public Library, commemorates the 70th anniversary of the “Princeton Plan,” a school integration process that went on to be nationally recognized. The discussion will contextualize the event in the broader national and regional context of desegregation, as well as inform about the local impact and national reverberations of the Princeton Plan. Featured speakers are Kevin M. Kruse, Professor of History at Princeton University, and local historian Shirley Satterfield, a member of the first integrated class at the Nassau Street School.
