        Central In Our Lives is the story of how students at Central High School experienced the historic desegregation of the school in 1957.  The story is told through student voices and offers a participant's involvement by the people who were there and who personally experienced the events.  The book tells what the students did to support school desegregation, the consequences paid for those actions, and what they were unable to do at the time.  The book identifies the educators, family members, and ministers that influenced the students' actions to do what was right.
