Graduate School Segregation and the Road to Brown

(p.69) Chapter Four A Drain on Taxpayers
Racial Taxation

Chapter Four looks at the NAACP's strategies in fighting for desegregated graduate school education leading up to the Brown v. Board of Education decision. The organization's legal strategy changed to center on integrated schools in the mid-1930s, but the early cases indicate the ongoing struggle to obtain equality from schools and the legal system through the legal articulation of taxpayer identity. In examining the cases that the organization brought from the 1930s to the 1950s, such as Murray v. Maryland and Missouri ex rel. Gaines, this chapter traces how the organization's legal strategy often centered on taxpayer status and taxpayer rights. Finally, this chapter looks at the way in which the Brown decision was rooted in legal theories which ignored or discounted economic and funding disparities.
