English Describing Archives: A Content Standard English Missouri Historical Society Library and Research Center Schlafly Cultural Desegregation Oral History Project Transcripts St. Louis Public Schools (Saint Louis, Mo.) A2162 1.0 Cubic Feet (2 boxes) 1994 Historical Sketch In 1981, Daniel and Adelaide Schlafly provided funding to eleven major St. Louis cultural institutions and requested proposals for creating educational programs for black and white children. In the 1990s, Dan Schlafly posed a question about the consequences of these experimental programs aimed at reducing racial isolation. The objective of this oral history project was to determine the consequences of the programs. Scope and Contents This collection contains both verbatim and edited transcripts of interviews conducted in 1994 regarding 1980s desegregation programs in St. Louis cultural and educational institutions. Some of these culturally based desegregation programs include the Missouri Botanical Garden's "Eco Act" program, the Missouri Historical Society's "Where Rivers Meet" program, and the Vaughn Cultural Center's "Eyes on the Prize" program. Interviews were conducted with former students and teachers in the programs, and with directors and staff at the various cultural institutions. The collection also includes two copies of the project report.
