Stewart talked about his involvement in the program, as well as his time as the first black principal in Tacoma Public Schools and his early life in a conversation with Katie Jennison, an administrative secretary in the Teaching and Learning Department. Jennison interviewed Stewart for a class she took about Tacoma community history as part of a graduate program at the University of Washington Tacoma.
The desegregation program involved closing several schools and letting students choose which school they would like to attend. Stewart oversaw a summer counseling program that helped students and their families adjust to the changes
"It was a privilege to interview Mr. Stewart, and I was astounded at how essential his role was in the success of the desegregation plan," Jennison said. "It's truly a story that everyone in TPS should have access to, and I feel privileged to have contributed to rediscovering its history."
