Herman Maxwell - Integrating Shades Cahaba in the 1960s

Shades Cahaba Oral History Project

Herman Maxwell has a special place in the history of Shades Cahaba. He was one of the first children to integrate Shades Cahaba Elementary School during the 1967-1968 school year. This didn't just happen overnight and Herman tells the story about how his parents prepared him for that day. Herman moved on to junior high and then high school where he played on the first state championship football team at Homewood High School in 1974. He went from a championship team to a not so successful University of Louisville team soon after. Listen to his story as Herman tells us what it was like to be at Shades Cahaba at this pivotal time and how it prepared him for the rest of his education and beyond. SPONSOR
