Gebhart v. Belton
Gebhart v. Belton (Court citation:33 Del. Ch. 144) was one of the four cases combined into Brown v. Board of Education, the famous case in which the U.S. Supreme Court, in 1954, officially overturned racial segregation in U.S. public schools.
Gebhart was originally filed in Delaware and was originally litigated by lawyers Jack Greenberg and Louis Redding under a strategy formulated by Robert L. Carter of the NAACP. Greenberg had assisted Carter at the original hearing of Brown.
