On Wednesday, July 27, 2022, at 6 pm CST, Leona Tate, one of the three six-year-old girls who desegregated McDonogh 19 Elementary School and the Executive Director of the Leona Tate Foundation, will sit down via Zoom with Richard Bunce, son of the late Betty S. Bunce, to discuss how each of the two families was influenced by the 1960’s school desegregation in New Orleans. During this one-hour talk and Q & A session, the audience will have the opportunity to hear first-hand how two families navigated life during this time and how it shaped the years after.
