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).
