The Fillmore Boys School in 1877:
Racial Integration, Creoles of Color, and the End of Reconstruction in New Orleans

Originally hosted by, this page is a digital showcase of my study about the 1877 register of the Fillmore School, one of the desegregated schools in New Orleans in the 1870s. By using ArcGIS, the project examines the impact of school desegregation and resegregation in New Orleans.
