Desegregating the South  The plights of blacks in the USA in the  50s….although there was so many African  Americans were living in America only 20% were  registered to vote and 5% were registered in the  South; this was so because they put hurdles in their  way so that they could not vote…those who got pass  paid the price…six black war veterans were lynched  in 1946 and in 1945 a black teen was lynched for  looking a white woman the wrong way. Sweatt v. Painter – Thurgood Marshall = this court  case agreed that separate professional schools were  not equal to white professional schools.
