HOCKESSIN, Del. - A Delaware school that educated black children in the days of racial segregation is going up for sale next month.

Hockessin School 107C, now part of a five-acre parcel belonging to the Hockessin Community Center, is to be sold Jan. 10 by the New Castle County Sheriff's Office. A construction company sued the center over unpaid debts of nearly $210,000, the Wilmington News Journal reported.

The school educated black students in the years before the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Brown v. Board of Education ruling struck down racial segregation in 1954. - AP
