Professor Tobias chronicles the social, political, and legal dimensions of Virginia's slow path to school desegregation following the Supreme Court's 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling. He compares Virginia's "massive resistance" strategy to the less recalcitrant approach of neighboring North Carolina.
