On October 3, 1961, Menelik Fombi (formerly Michael Willis), Dwania Kyles and Harry Williams were the first African-American students to enroll at Bruce Elementary School, ending nearly 100 years of segregation in Memphis public schools. Along with ten other students who integrated Memphis schools, they became known as the Memphis 13. The school will host a special program honoring the Memphis 13.
