The Mansfield School Desegregation Incident is a 1956 event in the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the United States. In 1956, the Mansfield Independent School District was segregated and sent its black children to separate, run down facilities. This went on for many years until three students brought a suit with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. As a result of the federal court case, the school district was ordered to desegregate. The school board approved the measure and allowed Mansfield High School to desegregate. The mayor and police chief of the city did not approve of this measure though. When school started on August 30 of 1956, they joined over 300 whites in front of Mansfield High School. Their goal was to prevent the enrollment of the three black students. The town turned into complete turmoil as 3 blacks were hanged in effigy as part of the demonstration.
According to a 2006 estimate, the median family income in Mansfield is $84,589.
