New York Daily News:
A Mississippi school district has been ordered to desegregate its schools after what the Justice Department called a five-decade-long legal battle.
The Cleveland School District, about two hours northwest of Jackson, was told that it must consolidate its schools in order to provide real desegregation for students in the city of about 12,000.
Residents first filed suit against the Bolivar County of Education in July 1965, according to an opinion handed down on Friday.
Holy crap! They fought allowing black students into their schools for fifty years?
Gee I wonder how long it will be before they let them use their drinking fountains?
