Storyboard Text

  • Linda, why do we have to walk so far just to get to school. Why aren't we allowed to go to Sumner?
  • Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka Dec 9, 1952 - May 17, 1954 Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas
  • That's because Sumner is an all white school, and Plessy v Ferguson allows for separate but equal facilities.
  • But it's not fair! We have to walk past that school just to get to our bus stop!
  • Sumner Elementary School
  • I that I'm thinking of it, I shouldn't be denied an education because of my race...
  • SCOTUS: Respondent's Case (Board of Education)
  • The federal government clearly leaves education policy to the states so that they can make the best decision for their state.
  • Equal doesn't mean the same. We are providing students with the proper materials and education they are most comfortable in.
  • SCOTUS: Petitioner's Case (the Browns)
  • Linda Brown's rights along with other African Americans' are being violated by denying an accessible education because of race.
  • Facilities that are separate are NOT equal.
  • The Supreme Court rules unanimously in favor of Brown.
  • The segregation of public schools by race violate the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment
  • Because of this... Plessy v. Ferguson & by default "separate but equal" was ruled unconstitutional and segregation became illegal.
