Brown vs. The Board Of Education By Ava Baum

Brown vs. the Board of Education is an event the changed school segregation in Topeka, Kansas forever.

In 1951 Linda an eight year old girl called Linda had to go all across her town just to get to the all black elementary school when the white school was only a few blocks away.

In Topeka, Kansas school segregation was legal, so African American kids could not go to the same school as whites. Which some people did not think was fair.

One family actually tried to help, they were the Brown family. Their daughter Linda, an 8 year old African American girl had to go one hour and thirty minutes just to get to school, every day! Linda's father, reverend Brown thought that this was not fair. So this case went to court.

Topeka, Kansas 1951

Justices Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Harold Burton, Felix Frankfurter, and Sherman Minton all thought segregation was unconstitutional . Justice Stanley Reed did not think segregation was unconstitutional (he did not really care that segregation was happening). The justices agreed( or most of them did ) to ban school segregation in Topeka, Kansas.

Brown vs. the Board of Education impacted school segregation in Tokpeka, Kansas forever. All of the kids can be together and have an equal learning experience.
