A pioneer for school integration in Charlottesville is finally getting her high school diploma.
On Saturday, Olivia Ferguson McQueen will receive her diploma 54 years after she graduated.
McQueen was a plaintiff in the case to desegregate the Charlottesville and Albemarle school districts in the 1950's.
A judge ruled she could attend the all-white high school, but the school board at the time refused to give her an official diploma when she graduated.
The ceremony will be held Saturday at 11:00 AM at Burely Middle School
