Liberty Hill A.M.E. Church

At a meeting in the Liberty Hill African Methodist Episcopal Church in 1950, parents signed a petition demanding integrated schools. Meetings were held at the church for the selection of petitioners in the complaint that would become Briggs vs. Elliott. The case became part of Brown v. Topeka Board of Education - the landmark case that struck down the "separate but equal" doctrine concerning the segregation of schools in 1954.
