Storyboard Text

  •  This is Linda Carol brown. She is the daughter of Oliver Brown. She has to walk one mile every day to go to her all-black school even though there is an all-white school only seven blocks away. 
  • She and her father have a discussion about this issue which leads to Oliver, her father, join other parents and the NAACP to fight this inequality.
  • Oliver and other NAACP members brought the Board of education to court for violating their 14th amendmen
  • The District Court ruled in favor of the Board of Education, citing the U.S.Supreme Court precedent set in Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 (1896), which had upheld a state law requiring "separate but equal." The case was still fought for by Brown and made its way to the supreme court. 
  • On May 17, 1954, the Court issued a unanimous 9–0 decision in favor of the Brown family and the other plaintiffs. This lead to the end of segregation in schools.
  • The “Brown vs. Board of Education” case is considered a landmark case because it addressed an important issue that impacted all of america. It made segregation illegal in public schools and was a huge leap forward in the Black Rights Movement.
