COURAGE: The Vision to End Segregation, the Guts to Fight for It (panel)

This smaller panel version of the original exhibit created by Levine Museum documents the efforts of a small African-American community in South Carolina to end separate and unequal schools for their children. Led by Rev. J. A. De Laine, the African-American citizens of Clarendon County filed what would become the first lawsuit in the composite Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court Case that legally ended racially segregated public schools in the United States. Courage: The Vision to End Segregation, the Guts to Fight For It shows how the actions of ordinary citizens led to the legal destruction of separate but equal doctrine, then explores the impact of their efforts on the struggle for equality in all sectors of American society.
