The Board of Education
May 17, 1954 | The US Supreme Court Hands Down It’s Ruling On Brown v. The Board of Education
On May 17, 1954 the US Supreme Court ruled that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal” in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. This landmark Supreme Court ruling reversed the segregationist methods of education which created separate and unequal school systems and overall inadequate education for African Americans which led to economic and social disparity throughout the country.
This ruling was a precedent to the overall progress of integration in America.
