Honoring Oliver Hill in Roanoke

As stated in this report ("Brown v. Board of Education decision traces its roots to former Roanoker," 5/2/04) from the Roanoke paper, 97 year-old Oliver Hill, a Roanoke native and retired Virginia lawyer, was "one of the architects of one of the most important Supreme Court cases in U.S. history, the Brown v. Board of Education decision that outlawed school segregation and opened the door for the civil rights victories of the past half-century."
