This storyboard does not have a description.
Linda Brown was a nine-year-old girl. She was in third grade and was attending school.
I'm sorry, Mr Brown. Your daughter would not be able to enrol into our school as she is a black child.
She was denied attending the closest school as she was African American and the school was a white school due to segregation laws.
Because of this, she had to walk six blocks from her home, down a busy road, through train tracks and then had to take a bus to arrive at Monroe Elementary which was an all black school.
