(Original Caption) December 7, 1953 - Washington: Crowds line up in the Supreme Court Building in Washington to hear second round arguments challenging the constitutionality of segregation in public schools. Cases from four states and the District of Columbia were being considered. With only 50 seats available not all got in to hear Negro attorneys urge the Supreme Court to end racial segregation in public schools and wipe out "a sorry heritage from slavery." Leading an array of legal talent prepared to defend segregation, is John W. Davis, onetime democratic candidate for president and expert on constitutional law.
