Brown v. Board of Education | BRI's Homework Help Series


Brown v. Board of Education was a case brought to the Supreme Court in 1954 after Linda Brown, an African American student in Kansas, was denied access to the white-only schools nearby her house. Future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall was the lawyer for the case, and argued that segregated schools were inherently unequal. Ultimately, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Linda Brown and declared segregation unconstitutional. This is one of the landmark cases that led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act in 1964.

  1. Brown v. Board of education is one of the most racist rulings ever by the supreme court… It basically says "Black people are too dumb to educate their own communities. Need the white man to take care of them."

  2. Good work. I have only one quibble. There wasn't just one "Civil Rights Act"–there were three after the Brown v. Board decision. During the Eisenhower administration, there was the 1954 Civil RIghts Act, the first such law passed since Reconstruction, and the 1960 Civil RIghts Act, which closed some loopholes and extended some provisions in the 1957 law. Both were weakened by Democrat opposition in the Senate. THEN came the 1964 Civil RIghts Act, which was much stronger. But it's not right to think that it was the only, or even the first, such action.

  3. arrrr….too good.
