All black schools were worn down and didn't get any new supplies. The children had to walk miles to get to school and back every day. The parents thought that since the white kids got buses, they should at least have one bus.
But the superintendent said no. They could not pay for black kids to have a bus. Even though the teachers were willing to pay, they were still denied.
We won! Yay!
So the parents signed a petition for integrated schools. Harry Briggs was the first to sign it. They ended up losing their case so they went to the Supreme Court, where they were grouped with other school cases.
They had a three-judge pannel. Only Judge Waring agreed with the parents that their children should get fair treatment.
It was a slow process, but finally, the parents of Briggs vs. Elliot and the case of Brown vs. Board of Education of Kansas won.
