During my service in the US Army I was fortunate to wind up working on the Integration plan for the US Seventh Army in Germany. After returning to college in the spring of 1954 I was lucky to be in the class of Dr. Kenneth Clark whose psychological studies help convince the US Supreme Court in its 1954 decision in Brown vs Board of Education to declare segregation of students in public schools violated the US Supreme Court. Dr. Clark told us in May, 1954 that if the president did not declare that September the official end of segregation we would still be arguing about segregation in the 21st century.
Well, his prediction did come true. In the year 2016, the Cleveland School District in Mississippi announced that this September it would finally, yes, finally integrate its school system. So, a Constitutional right for black Americans that dates back to 1954 was finally given them in 2016. Oh well, better late than never.
