It's actually somewhat fascinating that there was an integrated high school in 1951 -- granted it could still have been segregated under one roof.

It is from Ohio, if I had to guess, a rural farming community where there was 1 school for 50 square miles.  I base this opinion on my father and mother, they graduated from a rural high school in Michigan in 57 and 59 and their school was integrated. Those 34 students listed were probably the entire graduating class.

Brown v. Board of Education was 1954, so at the same school, the class of '51 and the class of '59 could have very different makeups. You could still have the "white classroom" and "black classroom" in the same graduating class there before Brown, which I wouldn't really call "integrated".

In any case, it would be interesting to find out what the school was actually like in 1951.

It did say specifically that it was Columbus's East High School.  There was a lot of de facto seggregation, but it wasn't official policy like in the south.  There were certainly integrated schools in Ohio prior to Brown v. Board.  Oberlin College in Ohio was the first College in the US to regularly admit black students in 1835.
