A number of things happened on the 30th of August in history, usually seen as the next to last day to enjoy summer.

On August 30, 1963 a connection was established between Moscow and Washington D.C. allowing communication between the White House and the Kremlin. This was after the US and Russia came very close to a nuclear war.

Also on this day, the first black astronaut went into space, Guion S. Bluford Jr.

Thurgood Marshall became the first African American to be appointed to the U.S Supreme Court.
