What's Happening at Rutgers
A Rutgers alumna played a significant role in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared school segregation unconstitutional. Julia Baxter Bates, the first African-American woman admitted to the university, was head of research for the NAACP when the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. She participated in the preparation of the NAACP’s successful legal brief.
