Shivers, and the
Crisis at Mansfield I igh
Drawing on interviews with surviving
participants, media reports, and archival
research, Ladino explores how power
politics at the local, state, and federal
levels ultimately prevented the early
integration of Mansfield Iligh School in
1956. Her research sheds new light on
the actions of'l exas Governor Allan
Shivers and it underscores President
Dwight Eisenhowcr's public passivity
toward civil rights during his first term
of office. Despite the short-term failure,
the Mansfield school integration crisis
helped pave the way for the successful
integration of Central I ligh School in
Little Rock in 1957 and deserves a
permanent place in the history of the
civil rights movement.
