Students from Spotswood High School have spent a year researching Federal Judge John Paul and his pivotal decisions regarding school desegregation in Virginia. During the course of their research, they had the unique opportunity to interview Paul family descendants and a number of student plaintiffs from Charlottesville and Warren County.
A number of honored guests, including State Judge John Paul and many of the original student plaintiffs from Allen v. Charlottesville and Kilby v. Warren County will be in attendance.
The legal system can force open doors, and sometimes even knock down walls, but it cannot build bridges. That job belongs to you and me.
-The Honorable Thurgood Marshall
