Virginia NAACP Defense

Spottswood W. Robinson III was the leader of Virginia's NAACP defense in the Virginia case, Davis v. County School Board of Prince Edward County, which was one of five cases consolidated as Brown v. Board of Education, (1954).

A companion case, Bolling v. Sharpe, 347 U.S. 497 (1954), was heard separately because it originated in Washington, DC, which is federal, not state, territory. This case had to be considered in terms of specific federal statutes.
