Storyboard Text

  • Following Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, the Supreme Court upheld a decision to expedite public school integration.
  • Busing was used as a way to continue segregation. Local officials, in defiance of Brown v. Board, kept schools segregated by instituting ridiculous busing rules.
  •  Brown v. Board did so much
  • That all changed when Vera and Darius Swann sued the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District. They wanted their son to attend the nearby Seversville Elementary School. 
  • Seversville Elementary
  • 
  • Bye, son!
  • I'm appealing this!
  • The case was first tried in District Court. There, Judge James McMillan ruled in the favor of the Swann's and oversaw the implementation of a new busing strategy to expedite integration.
  • Let's make history
  • After the case was appealed, it was sent to the Supreme Court. 
  • We decided Brown v. Board for a reason
  • The nine Justices on the Supreme Court eventually upheld District Judge McMillan's ruling. They also decided that his busing strategy would be implemented in other parts of the country.
