Summary
In 1954, one of the most significant Supreme Court decisions of the twentieth Century aimed to end school segregation in the United States. Although known as Brown v. Board of Education, the ruling applied not just to the case of Linda Carol Brown, an African American third grader refused entry to an all-white Topeka, Kansas school, but to cases involving children in South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Here is the story of the many people who stood up to racial inequality, some risking significant danger and hardship, and of careful strategizing by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)
Summary
Traces the lesser-known stories of advocates and activists who risked significant danger and hardship to uphold the 1954 desegregation ruling by the Supreme Court, sharing additional information on how the NAACP carefully strategized their own responses to period racism
