League member, Sharon McGlone, will tell us about her experiences as a fourth-grader when she and six other African-American girls integrated the Robert E. Lee Elementary School and Spotsylvania High School in 1963, beginning the desegregation of Spotsylvania County schools over the next five years. Sharon plans to open up conversation about “are the walls down?”
