Dansby School educators, set to be demolished http://redriverradio.org/post/kilgore-remembers-cb-dansby-school-educators-set-be-demolished <p>In Kilgore, Texas, demolition work is set to begin on C.B. Dansby High School that was built around 1930. The former all-black school was closed by desegregation in 1969. Today, it stands as a blighted, asbestos-filled property. Alumni leader De’Lores Arline attended the school before it closed. She recalls singing the school song for the last time, and how her classmates put on a brave front when transferring to Kilgore High School during the civil rights era.</p><p></p> Mon, 22 Jul 2013 15:52:21 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 30913 at http://redriverradio.org Kilgore remembers C.B.
