    It's a bit of a dichotomy in the sense that yes, it was Brown v. Board, but that only applied to the school system. Still, "legal" segregation was ended by Cooper v. Aaron, six years after Brown.

    Here's the list:

    Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 (1896)* - separate but equal for schools

    Sipuel v. Board of Regents of Univ. of Okla. - 332 U.S. 631 (1948)* - access to taxpayer state funded law schools

    Mendez v. Westminster, 64 F. Supp. 544 (1946)* - prohibits segregating Mexican American children in California

    Sweatt v. Painter, 339 U.S. 629 (1950)* - prohibited segregated law schools in Texas

    McLaurin v. Oklahoma State Regents, 339 U.S. 637 (1950)* - prohibits segregation in a public institution of higher learning

    Brown v. Board (1954) prohibited segregation in school system

    Bolling v. Sharpe, 347 U.S. 497 (1954)* Brown companion case - dealt with the constitutionality of segregation in the District of Columbia, which--as a federal district, not a state--is not subject to the Fourteenth Amendment.

    Cooper v. Aaron, 358 U.S. 1 (1958)* – Federal court enforcement of desegregation

    Boynton v. Virginia, 364 U.S. 454 (1960)* - outlawed racial segregation in public transportation

    Heart of Atlanta Motel v. United States, 379 U.S. 241 (1964)* - banned racial discrimination in public places, particularly in public accommodations even in private property.

    Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967)* - banned anti-miscegenation laws (race-based restrictions on marriage).
