An impressive museum telling the story of intergration at Clinton High School. The introductory video was very well done. The story is told in pictures and commentaries. In the last room you learn what the Clinton twelve did with the lives. The 60 minutes program narated by Edward R. Murrell was excellent and shouldn't be missed.

I really did not know what to expect when my wife suggested we stop here. We were at the Museum of Appalachia and drove into Clinton for lunch. The guide was excellent. She showed us a movie that captured the times of the 1950s and 1960s when schools where still segregated. The Center does an excellent job through the movie and through the displays to tell the story of the 12 Clinton students who integrated Clinton High School. This story, along with others, need to be told to our youth.

This impressive and important cultural center is beautifully curated and presented and so very sensitively done. We were tremendously impressed. I was profoundly moved and this should be required in all schools curricula .

We visited this small museum today, which is free, to learn more about the Clinton 12. The basic exhibits include lots of photos and narrative, all of which is amazing! The year was 1956, way before many of the other integration stories, and takes you through the school year and beyond. There’s a short 7-minute video of introduction, which helps you get acclimated in time. However, the “don’t miss” is the hour-long video of a news program by Edward R. Murrow...you might think that’s too long, but it’s extremely interesting and includes interviews with all the main players in this civil rights drama!

Hard to believe this event actually occurred. I lived through desegregation in Virginia beginning in the 6th grade, no violence or protests, just lots of meetings and cultural sharing.
