Brown v. Board of Education

 

Brown v. Board of Education (May 17, 1954) was a landmark United States Supreme Court case where the Court declared state laws which established separate public schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional. The decision overturned the Plessy v. Ferguson decision of 1896. As a result, de jure racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. (Wikipedia, 2014)
