EDUCATION

The NAACP's best-known legal victory was Brown vs. Board of Education, the 1954 Supreme Court ruling outlawing school segregation.  The NAACPs lead lawyer in the case was Thurgood Marshall, who later became the first African-American Supreme Court Justice. Today, equal education in Loudoun County remains at the forefront of our efforts.
