Brother's death inspired Stevenson to integrate LHS

Loharrel Stevenson had a decision to make in 1966: Which high school would he attend.
He had a couple of options. He could join his neighborhood friends at the all-black Wilson County High School. Or he could go to Lebanon High, whose doors had until recent years been closed to people of his skin color.
Had he followed the easy way, succumbed to peer pressure, he could have gone to the school on East Market Street where all his friends and relatives before him had attended.
But this decision wasn’t about Loharrel Stevenson.
