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.
