  • The story of the Hoxie School desegregation will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 21, at the DCC Visitors Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. The presenter will be Fayth Hill Washington, who was one of the African Americans students, known as the Hoxie 21, who integrated with the previously all-white Hoxie School. The Hoxie School desegregation is significant because it was the first integration of grades K-12 in the Delta, taking place two years before the better-known desegregation of Little Rock's Central High School.
