In Alabama, schools were 'separate but equal' which according to the law was okay
I wish I could go to school here
Many blacks-only schools were much further away
The walk to my school is so far
When Linda Brown was denied access to an all-whites school, her and her father went to the District court to state that segregated schools violated the 'separate but equal' clause
Board of Education
It was decided that ''in the field of public education that doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place'', as segregated schools are ''inherently unequal''
After the Brown VS Board of Education case, blacks and white were allowed to go to school together
I'm so glad we can go to school together
The Brown VS Board of Education was so significant because it marked a turning point in the history of ace relations in the U.S. On May 17, 1954, the court stripped away constitutional sanctions for segregation by race, and made equal opportunity in education.
