Web site providing a lesson plan about the 1968 Green v. School Board of New Kent County (Virginia) United States Supreme Court decision which overturned a local "freedom-of-choice" school desegregation plan, ruling that such plans tend to be ineffective at achieving integration.

Watkins School; a list of activities; and a list of supplementary resources.
