This chapter centers on the protests of the next generation i.e. men, women, and young people who resisted the NCTA's more discreet approach. This generation carried out a remarkable fight for school facilities equalization. The chapter looks at school conditions with respect to transportation, buildings, and furnishings during World War II. Furthermore, the chapter looks at the Lumberton's 1946 School Protest in which black students went on strike to protest against school conditions. This had been inspired by the local NAACP Youth Council. This protest uncovered the strategic differences within the local black community and between local civil rights and national leaders. The chapter also discusses the Brown v. Board of Education case.
