Hillsboro integration leader interviewed


Award-winning Cincinnati documentary filmmaker Andrea Torrice was at the Highland House Museum in Hillboro recently to interview nearly 100-year-old Elsie Young, who was one of five African American mothers who filed a lawsuit to pursue the integration of the Hillsboro Elementary School during the mid 1950s. A committee from the Highland County Historical Society, Torrice and author Susan Banyas are developing an exhibit for the Highland House Museum on this subject. Like Mother Eliza Jane Thompson and the women of Highland County prior to Prohibition, these mothers used civil disobedience to change history. Torrice, left, is pictured with Young.
