Newspapers React to Supreme Court Decision
Southern states, and many of the states bordering the south, did not react well to the Brown v. Board of Education decision to integrate public schools. These newspaper articles report on the anger directed toward the Supreme Court and the various options southern states debated to get around the decisions. From creating state-subsidized private schools to completely ignoring the decision, southern states sought a number of alternatives to avoid the objectionable ruling. However, change did come in the South, and more often than not, it came violently.
