Panel Discussion for School Integration Anniversary, Historical Society of Princeton


Thursday October 18, 2018
7:00 PM

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the “Princeton Plan,” the Historical Society of Princeton is hosting a panel discussion at its Updike Farmstead headquarters on Thursday, October 18, at 7:00 PM.

A school integration process that went on to be nationally recognized, the “Princeton Plan” combined two elementary schools, the Nassau Street School and the Witherspoon School, in 1948. The discussion will contextualize the event in the broader national and regional historical context of desegregation, as well as inform about the local impact and national reverberations of the Princeton Plan. Featured speakers are Kevin M. Kruse, Professor of History at Princeton University, and local historian Shirley Satterfield, a member of the first integrated class at the Nassau Street School.

This program is presented in conjunction with exhibitions about the Princeton Plan at the Historical Society of Princeton and the Princeton Room at the Princeton Public Library this fall. This program is free and open to the public, thanks to support from the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education and Genocide Studies. Space is limited, and advance registration on HSP’s website,, is recommended.
