FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's newest high school was being dedicated Sunday.
Judge Ronald N. Davies High School honors the former federal judge from Fargo who issued a series of racial desegregation rulings in Arkansas in the 1950s. Among the speakers scheduled Sunday afternoon was Carlotta Walls LaNier, a member of the Little Rock Nine — the group of black students who broke the color barrier at their Arkansas school after Davies' rulings.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer also was to speak, along with 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Myron Bright, of Fargo.
Davies died in 1996. The federal courthouse in Grand Forks also is named for him.
