    The excellent Mississippi history textbook was written by historians and students I knew at Millsaps College, Jackson, MS. Winning the federal case meant only that the book became an option for individual teachers and libraries in public schools. I don’t believe it was ever mandatory. And of course the segregation academies springing up at that time censored it.
