Product description

The 1949 Briggs vs. Elliot case that originated in Clarendon County and the Orangeburg selective buying campaign were both crucial events in the creation of the civil rights movement that changed the course of United States history. Out-of-the-Box in Dixie is the story of these heroic people whose quest for equality, sacrifices and contributions should not be forgotten. It was the Briggs vs. Elliot case that caused the national office of the NAACP to redirect its approach from suing for "separate but equal" facilities to challenging segregation as a violation of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. On May 17, 1954, the United States Supreme Court handed down the decision that segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This publication is dedicated to documenting the unobtrusive heroism and actions of many people who have been inadequately represented in interpretive discussion relative to desegregation and equality in America.
