Subject

Texas Supreme Court knocks out segregation law.

Description

Texas Supreme Court in R.E McKinney et al v. W.C. Blankenship et al declared Texas Statutes that legalized the segregated school system were unconstitutional. In response, Governor Shivers and Attorney General Shepperd made public statements that this decision does not call for any speed-up of desegregation, stating, "In the light of these decisions, no school district should feel compelled to take hasty or unnecessary action." They also said there would be no plan to appeal the court's decision.
