BROWN VS. TOPEKA BOARD OF EDUCATION
Brown v. Board of Education was a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students unconstitutional. The decision overturned the decision of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) which allowed state-sponsored segregation.
'Brown vs Topeka Board of Education' was a case before the Supreme Court of the United States which resulted in a 1954 ruling that set aside a Kansas statute that permitted cities of over 15,000 to maintain separate schools for blacks and whites.
The court ruled that all segregation in public schools was inherently unequal, thus beginning the desegregation of schooling and eventually of other public places and programs.
In the early decades of the twentieth century the Supreme Court had found that segregation was constitutional and America became increasingly racially divided.
