Massive Resistance: The Battle Over Southern Schools After Brown v. Board of Education

ID : 698   
« back to classes page
In 1954 the Supreme Court ruled that segregation in public schools was unconstitutional but for a decade Southern states thwarted implementation of the landmark decision.  In this course we will examine the historic case, including the events and legal developments that preceded it.  Then we'll look at the means by which Southern legislatures and public officials defied the Court's decree.  Finally, we'll see how
federal intervention, impelled by the surging civil rights movement, overcame organized resistance to mixed-race schools.
