StoryCorps, the NPR oral history project, has now produced an animated versio
n of Rev. James Seawood's
account of the arrival of school desegregation in Sheridan, Ark.

That telling prompted an addition to the historical record
by a Sheridan resident who observed the same events from the white side of town. That in turn, produced some comments by readers on oral history and race.
