Recently my cousin sent me the article on Mulberry School in which the article stated that the school had a separate classroom for minority students well into the 1950s. This is totally inaccurate. Segregation was never practiced at Mulberry School.
This notion is laughable in that the opposite is true. In my experience racial equality was taught at Mulberry School long before it was politically correct, when segregation was acceptable elsewhere.
My parents met at Mulberry School and my extended family made up the majority of the majority at Mulberry School throughtout the 50s and 60s, many times having sisters, brothers and cousins in each of first through eighth grades.
I vaguely remember a separate class for English as a second language, but that was in the 60s and was discontinued as soon as the students involved had a grasp of the English language.
