A historical marker was unveiled at Shaw Air Force Base to honor Col. James E. Randall and the 13 other Shaw airmen who filed a lawsuit in the 1960's to compel Sumter to adhere to the Brown vs. Board of Education desegregation ruling. Randall joined the ceremony via Skype from his home in Colorado, and his son attended to see the sign honoring his father.
