L'arrêt Brown V. Board of education of Topeka du 17 mai 1954 et ses modalités d’application dans le comté de Prince Edward (Virginie)

Abstract : This doctoral dissertation deals with the Supreme Court’s edict of 1954 brown v. board of education of Topeka, requiring school desegregation. If several school districts rapidly complied with that decision, the white citizens of prince Edward County, Virginia were not so obliging. For a decade they challenged the federal judiciary and refused to countenance even token desegregation. When the policy of massive resistance established by the authorities was declared unconstitutional, they refused to finance public schools in 1959 and established a private academy for white students. For four years there was not formal education for blacks in the county, and when the public schools were reopened in 1964, their enrollment was almost black. Segregation was maintained by developing a new version of the dual school system even though this arrangement was widely criticized. Today the school district is still predominantly black.
