In memory of
Darius Swann
Darius Swann was the lead plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case, Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. In 1964, Reverend Swann tried to send his 6-year old son James to an integrated elementary school in their neighborhood. James came home upset with a note from the principal that he must first attend an all-black school before applying to attend an integrated school. That led the Swanns to be the lead plaintiffs in the case that was decided in 1971. The court said that busing was a proper tool to use to desegregate schools. We invite you to share condolences for Darius Swann in our Guest Book. Read Full Obituary.
