Description
The Anne Weymouth Deirup Collection on Desegregation of Berkeley Schools, 1954-1979, consists of reports, newsletters, pamphlets and materials relating to the integration of Berkeley public schools and the fight for racial justice and social change. The collection includes Deirup's correspondence, notes, and statements made at public meetings regarding education, integration of schools, and student rights. The collection includes publications from local community organizations, parent-teacher associations, and the Berkeley Unified School District.
Background
Anne Weymouth Deirup (1918-2003), dedicated activist for social change, worked to improve public education in the Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) from the 1950s through the 1970s. She was an outspoken advocate for school integration, rights of students, and racial justice. She was active in Berkeley politics promoting racial and social equality and represented the rights of school children as an active member of the Parent Teacher Association and BUSD planning committees. In such work, Deirup collected materials documenting these efforts; these materials now make up the Anne Weymouth Deirup Collection on Desegregation of Berkeley Schools.
