Description is exactly "This pamphlet features eight high school students from historically underrepresented or disadvantaged backgrounds that attended Hanover High School in 1964 as members of the ABC (A Better Chance) Project, meant to diversify the pool of students enrolled in competitive preparatory schools and ultimately universities. Although the author asserts that ABC participants are similar to their peers at Hanover High, they emphasize the extra academic pressures that were undoubtedly placed upon ABC students, who were “expected to work harder... than most of their contemporaries.”"
