The Fillmore Boys School in 1877: Racial Integration, Creoles of Color and the End of Reconstruction in New Orleans is a digital history project that analyzes the 1877 register of the Fillmore Boys School, one of the desegregated schools in New Orleans from the early 1870s to 1877. The project aims to reveal New Orleans citizens’ micro-level experiences of school desegregation, focusing on Creoles of color, the francophone Catholics and interracial and African descent.
