Brown vs. Board of Education: Case Depiction by Kaleb Dufrene
Non- Fiction A-F
In 1896, the landmark court case Plessy vs Ferguson created the "separate but equal" policy.
This meant that African-American and White children would have to attend different schools. Although the court ruled "separate but equal," African-American children received a poorer education than White children did.
Seeing this, a man was outraged and decided to take this unfairness to court - the Supreme Court.
The "seperate but equal" method was declared unconstitutional in an astounding 9-0 vote. The small-town man won the case against the Topeka Board of Education.
All United States schools were integrated and now ALL children recieve the quality education that they deserve.
