Group portrait of some of the more than one hundred African-American students named in the legal case 'Dorothy Davis, et al. v. County School Board of Prince Edward County, Virginia' as they pose together, Farmville, Virginia, March 1953. The lawsuit was initially filed to seek repairs for Robert Moton High School, a segregated school; later, on appeal, the case was attached to the landmark 'Brown vs Board of Education' case. Among those pictured is Dorothy E. Davis (center, with glasses), for whom the suit was named. (Photo byHank Walker/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty Images)
