History[edit]

In 1925, 9-year-old Marth Lum was denied admission to Rosedale Consolidated High School (now West Bolivar High School) because she was Chinese American. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Mississippi's right to exclude her in Lum v. Rice. That decision was overturned in Brown v. Board of Education in 1954.
