From Dunbar to Destiny: One Woman's Journey Through Desegregation and Beyond

Front Cover
By the time the Warren Court began rearguing "Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka," Tucson's board of education had already made its decision: racially segregated education in Tucson's public schools would cease to exist. Though Shirley Robinson Sprinkles, a student at Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary and Junior High, was not happy about the forthcoming integration at the time, she realized in retrospect that it was the best thing that could have happened to her. Dunbar gave her a solid educational foundation and provided her with the experiences and opportunities that would set her on her path. With vivid descriptions of the events that shaped her unusual, unpredictable life, Shirley weaves a tale of courage, indomitable spirit, and faith.
