- This fall 1957 court transcript relates to an appeal to the North Carolina Supreme Court to reverse a lower court's decision allowing six African American children to attend two traditionally all-white schools in Greensboro, North Carolina. African American students Josephine Boyd, Harold David, Elijah Herring, Russell Herring, Brenda Florence, and Jimmie Florence had been assigned to the all-white Greensboro Senior High School and Gillespie Elementary School in the fall of 1957. White parents of children at the two schools appealed the decision, and when the case was denied, they appealed a second time (shown here) and ultimately were again denied, thus allowing desegregation of Greensboro schools to move forward.
