Alexander v Holmes County Board of Ed: I need websites that have a summary about what the case was about?
I cannot for the life of me find good information, I have tried multiple websites, Googling it and even Wikipedia. I just can't find anything useful.
So could someone direct me to an informative website or a book?

Did you spell it correctly?
"Alexander v. Holmes County Board of Education, 396 U.S. 1218 (1969) was a 1969 case for the Supreme Court of the United States ordering desegregation of schools in the American South." Wiki
"Alexander v. Holmes County Board of Education, 396 U.S. 19 (1969). In this case the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which effectively would have postponed until September 1970 the date when thirty-three Mississippi school districts would be required to implement desegregation plans. In its opinion, the Court declared it to be the obligation of all districts to eliminate dual school systems immediately. This opinion also proclaimed "no longer constitutionally permissible" the "all deliberate speed" formula that the Supreme Court had adopted in 1955 to describe the pace at which the desegregation of southern schools must proceed".
