“Segregation declared unconstitutional” headline from Tribune (Roanoke)

Description

The Tribune, advertised as "the only negro newspaper published in Southwest Virginia," made the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education their top story. They reported that the Court would hear arguments later in the year on "how and when to end the practice" of segregation in schools. Because of the South's adoption of massive resistance, it would take decades for schools to desegregate.
