Case Summary of Brown v. Board of Education: Oliver Brown was denied admission into a white school. As a representative of a class action suit, Brown filed a claim alleging that laws permitting segregation in public schools were a violation of the 14th Amendment equal protection clause. Studies showed that segregated students felt less motivated, inferior and have a lower standard of performance than non-minority students. In 1954, the United States Supreme Court, in the case of Brown v. Board of Education, unanimously struck down as unconstitutional all state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students, holding that they violated the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection of the laws.

This critical contribution marks the fiftieth anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education. The book lets the reader come to grips with the fascinating record of a case in which facts have made a more thrilling story than fiction. The suit involved civil rights giants Thurgood Marshall and the leaders of the NAACP. Their goals were lofty: not content with merely improving the conditions for black children in a single school district, they chose to fight for an end to all segregation. They mapped out a careful strategy as early as 1939, picking the most promising cases, achieving lower court decisions, and finally combining the five cases for the countdown to Brown before the Supreme Court. The book contains a general introduction and extensive commentary. But it attempts for the most part to let the majestic record of Brown speak for itself.
