Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka I and II
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

This resource informs students about the Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka I and II. Since the Supreme Court’s decision in Plessy v. Ferguson, the doctrine of “separate but equal” legalized racial segregation in the United States. The Supreme Court finally rejected that doctrine in 1954 on the ground that segregated schools led to unequal educational opportunities for white and black students, which in turn had negative psychological effects on the self-image of black children. The end of legal segregation was cause for great hope and inspiration to Civil Rights leaders. When novelist Ralph Ellison heard the Court’s decision he wrote, “Another battle of the Civil War has been won. … What a wonderful world of possibilities are unfolded for the children!”
