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.
