The Matter of Diversity after Brown v. Board

This week marks 65 years since the 1954 Supreme Court decision on Brown vBoard of Education of Topeka, when the justices ruled racial segregation of children in public schools was unconstitutional. The decision was unanimous but not warmly received by many school systems around the country. Alexandria followed the lead of the Commonwealth of Virginia and delayed the integration of our schools until 1959.

Six decades later, students from Francis C. Hammond Middle School, T.C. Williams High School and the T.C. Williams Satellite Campus can’t imagine going to school separately and see diversity as a gift.
