This chapter looks at the experiences recounted by members of the community of Louisville and Jefferson Country regarding the busing of 1975. Reminiscences reveal the extent to which the negative reaction to busing, which included mass rallies by opponents, a white student boycott of the schools, and riots in the south end of the county, came to dominate the public memory of desegregation in the community. Many of the narratives presented in this chapter tell the story of the turmoil that accompanied busing both inside and outside the schools.
