  1. Brown Vs. Board Of Education By Randy B

  2. In the early 1950's, racial segregation in public schools was the norm across America. Although all the schools in a given district were supposed to be equal, most black schools were far inferior to their white counterparts. How It Was

  3. Linda Brown • A black third-grader named Linda brown lived only a few blocks from a school but that school was a white school so she had to walk one mile to the nearest black school and this was supposedly separate but equal.

  4. What She Went Through • Linda Brown had to walk one mile through a railroad switchyard to get to her black elementary school, even though a white elementary school was only seven blocks away. • Linda's father, Oliver Brown, tried to enroll her in the white elementary school, but the principal of the school refused.

  5. Linda Going to school Linda Brown and Her Sister Walking to School (1953) by Carl Iwasaki (Modern Print). Sisters Linda and Terry Brown were not allowed to attend nearby all-white New Summer School in Topeka, Kansas, but had to walk through the dangerous Rock Island switchyard to catch a bus for the all-black Monroe School. On May 17, 1954, in Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the separate-but-equal doctrine, ending the legal basis for segregation of public schools.

  6. Someone Cares • The NAACP took up her case, along with similar ones in Kansas, South Carolina, Virginia, and Delaware. All five cases were argued together in December, 1952 by Thurgood Marshall, a black lawyer who headed the NAACP.
