NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – For Black History Month, the Tennessee State Library and Archives is making available online a new collection that traces the history of school desegregation.

Southern School News was the official publication of the Southern Education Reporting Service. According to the journal, that service was "an objective, fact-finding agency established by southern newspaper editors and educators with the aim of providing accurate, unbiased information" about desegregation after the U.S. Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision.

Members of the board included the presidents and chancellors of Fisk and Vanderbilt Universities and George Peabody College. Also included were editors of The Nashville Banner and The Nashville Tennessean.

The Southern School News Digital Collection is full-text searchable and comprises 11 volumes published from 1954 to 1965 in Nashville.
