Do You Know the History of Briggs vs. Elliott?

I’m guessing most folks aren’t aware of the South Carolina desegregation case. Although unsuccessful, Briggs became a key element in the eventual Brown vs. Board of Education landmark Supreme court decision.

The Post & Courier recently had an excellent article leading up to the 70th anniversary of Brown. It focuses on the role played by eventual Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. To read the P&C article CLICK HERE. Non-subscribers will encounter a pay wall.
