Herman got to attend the UT Austin law school. He was able to attend the same exact classes as the white Americans (that's what changed) although, the the teachers got to decide wether, or not he got to physically be in the class. Without this decision there might not be diverse schools in the U.S. today.
Sweatt v. Painter Victoria Davis
The Sweatt v. Painter case involved an African American named Herman Sweatt, and his right to attend the University of Texas at Austin law school.
The school tried to build a separate building just for Herman, but the court argued that he would not be getting an equal education.
The court decided this, because you can't learn to be a lawyer, if you have no one to interact with. So Herman would have been isolated.
Because of the court's decision Mr.Sweatt was given the education he was deserved, and he was able to be in classes with students of a different race. Although the teachers were the one's who decided if he could physically be in the classroom.
Because of this case, I feel it lead to more diverse schools, and lead the united states onto the path of what equal really means.
