On October 29, 1969, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Alexander v. Holmes County Board of Education that “effective immediately . . . each of the school districts here involved may no longer operate as a unitary school system within which no person is to be effectively excluded from any school because of race or color.” Thirty of the thirty-three Mississippi school districts named in the case were ordered to open as fully operational unitary school systems no later than February 1, 1970. The rest of the South was expected to follow suit. The Alexander case remains one of the most significant court rulings in school desegregation. Learn more about Alexander v. Holmes County Board of Education and read the case law
