Ophelia De Laine Gona talked about her book, Dawn of Desegregation: J. A. De Laine and Briggs v. Elliott. In 1947 her father, Joseph A. De Laine, a pastor and school principal, led the black community of Clarendon County, South Carolina, to challenge South Carolina’s “separate but equal” practice of racial segregation in public schools. They took their lawsuit, Briggs v. Elliott, to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it was the first of the five law suits that became part of the decision known as Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka.

She was interviewed by the crew of the C-SPAN 2012 Campaign Bus. The date and location of the interview are not known. close
