Hello all, 
I am currently working on a presentation for a high school lesson on the  
civil rights.  I would like to explain to the children that the Bill of  Rights 
is a living document that changes with the times.  I want to use the  example 
that if you were to stand trial today (hopefully) you would have a jury  of 12 
people of mixed races and genders while in the past a jury of your peers  was 
considered 12 white men.  Does anyone know when juries because  desegregated 
and with what case?
Thank you for any information.
