On September 10, 1935, Black students Lucille Scott and Margaret Williams were denied admittance to Catonsville High School. NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall filed suit. Although they lost the case, Maryland's Court of Appeals acknowledged that a system of racially separate schools inherently allowed "some inequalities." This concept later proved decisive in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the landmark 1954 case, also argued by Marshall, in which the U.S. Supreme court declared racial segregation in schools unconstitutional.
