Pamela Grundy’s presentation covers the experiences of high school athletes and cheerleaders as North Carolina schools desegregated during the 1960s. While athletic teams scored some of desegregation's most notable early successes, the desegregation of cheerleading squads often sparked dramatic conflicts, highlighting some of the dilemmas raised by the desegregation process.  Pamela Grundy is an independent historian living in Charlotte, where she pursues a variety of writing, teaching and museum projects.
