The Brown vs. Board of Education ruling in 1954 outlawed separate but equal in the United States and the journey toward integration of the school systems in the United States began.

WVVA's Joshua Bolden sat down with Principal George Erps who was principal of what is now Bluefield High School during that period.

In addition to Erps students reflected on their time as Beavers and teachers discuss the importance of teaching generations about history of our area.

Erps has also written a book on the subject, Bluefield High School...from Segregation to Integration: after Brown vs Board of Education which can be purchased here.
