Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists primarily of bound court reports concerning the desegregation of public schools in the Dallas Independent School District  as set forth in Tasby v. Estes (N.D. Tex. 1976). In addition to the court documents, there are materials from NAACP public meetings aimed to increase parental involvement in improving Dallas public schools. This includes six VHS recordings of the meetings.

The materials span a twenty-seven year period from 1976-2003, with the bulk of the materials falling during the implementation of the bussing program, 1994-2003.

Collection Historical Note

Desegregation of the Dallas Independent School District began as early as 1955 and continued in the early 2000s. This collection documents the legal proceedings following Tasby v. Estes (N.D. Tex. 1976) involving busing plans and efforts to improve education services at minority-majority schools. The materials were accumulated by Brenda Fields, chairwoman of the Dallas NAACP's education committee and co-plaintiff in the case.
