"SEPARATE BUT UNEQUAL" by Sadie Lewis George
Separate But Unequal -- Black Education and Life During Jim Crow In Terrebonne Parish
by Sadie Lewis George
(Lynne M. George's Mom)
About the Book: Separate But UnEqual is a chronological account of the unfair treatment of Black citizens in the Terrebonne Parish system during a vast portion of the Jim Crow era. This extensive compilation of research materials includes many historical events that I vicariously experienced through my grandparents, parents and my very own personal journey--candid information that gave me a burning desire to reveal the unjust laws placed upon the Black citizens of Terrebonne Parish.
