LaVon Bracy Fights For Her Rights

LaVon Bracy Fights For Her Rights

When her father sued Alachua County Public Schools to end desegregation, he also offered his own daughter to attend all-white Gainesville High School. LaVon Bracy, now living in Orlando, Fla., remembers the abuse she suffered from so many students and administrators – but she wouldn’t give up the fight to end segregation in public schools, even when it meant putting her own life at risk.
