Ban against segregation applicable to colleges, Supreme Court rules/Order of court is final result

Date: March 6, 1956

Author: Associated Press

Biographical/Historical abstract: The Associated Press is a global news network based in New York City.

Additional contributor: David E. Green

Description: These two articles, published March 6, 1956, in the Greensboro Daily News report on the Supreme Court ruling extending the scope of Brown vs. Board of Education on desegregation to support tax-supported universities and colleges as well. An uncredited Associated Press article states that the court ruled that three black applicants must be admitted to the University of North Carolina without regard to race. A companion article by David E. Green of the Daily News notes that the students had ultimately been admitted prior to the ruling, but that the university still voted to appeal a lower-court ruling. This decision set the stage for the admission of black students to the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina in the fall of 1956.
