Storyboard Text

  • This selection of suits would become to be known as Brown v. The Board of Education.
  • During the 1950s a collection of crucial court cases were brought to the Supreme Court.
  • The ruling that the Supreme Court would decide for the case would result in the eventual desegregation of many schools that seperated whites and blacks.
  • One of the main cases involved was dubbed Belton vs. Gebhart, which was centered around the horrid conditions at an all black school in Hockessin, rather than attending the well maintained Claymont school.
  • Our school has only one room, and we cant be picked up by the bus because according to the Department of Public Instruction, its for whites only.
  • Tired of this injustice, many sets of parents went to NAACP attorney Louis Redding to challenge this segregation.
  • Ms. Bulah, Ms. Belton, it would be in our best interest to sue the State Board of Education in order to change state law.
  • After going to court, victory was attained in some senses, by it was not the major ruling the two wanted.
  • But this only applies to our local communities. We must bring change to the entire state of Delaware.
  • Our only option is to pursue this suit higher into the legal system.
  • In your communities, the "separate but equal" doctrine has been violated. Your children have permission to be entered into the well kept all-white schools immediately.
