In Brown v Board II (1955), the Supreme Court revisited the case and issued a follow up ruling to the lower courts.
Although the Court reached an unanimous decision, many states opposed the integration of schools. Ex-Senator Harry Byrd organized Massive Resistance in response to the Brown v Board II. This group cut off state funds and shut down schools trying to integrate.
Despite failing to desegregate public school on its own, the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v Board of Education helped start the civil rights movement in the US. The case led to the end of the Jim Crow Laws and helped create laws such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
