In the summer of 1956, Clinton High School admitted the first black students into classes since the landmark Supreme Court decision on Brown v. The Board of Education in 1954. Located in the eastern Tennessee city of Clinton, Clinton High School was among the southern educational institutions that preserved segregation in schools.
