    Many school districts complied with the Brown decision without incident. Many Americans also believed that there was no great harm in segregation. So, in some smaller districts and in some states, segregation continued. It was not until the incident in Little Rock, Arkansas, in September, 1957, that the federal government found it necessary to enforce the Brown decision via the use of force. The battle for integration would continue for another decade. But the civil rights movement left the court room and entered the streets, schools, public buildings, etc., mostly peacefully.

  • What most people never think about is that it DID NOT APPLY to the majority of schools in the first place.

    Suburbs is a word direct from Latin: Rome was the first city in the world to reach a population of 1 MILLION persons; they did not like the city back then, so went to the suburbs.

    So, whites escaped the city for the burbs to avoid racial integration; apartheid is separation by races;

    they avoided the liberal supreme courts ruling by changing the face of schooling.

    The staggering courtroom's Brown v. Board of practise determination did no longer abolish segregation in different public areas, such as eating places and restrooms, nor did it require desegregation of public colleges via a particular time. It did, besides the incontrovertible fact that, declare the permissive or mandatory segregation that existed in 21 states unconstitutional. It grew to become right into a great step in the direction of finished desegregation of public colleges. Even partial desegregation of those colleges, besides the incontrovertible fact that, grew to become into nevertheless very a techniques away, as might quickly become obvious The landmark staggering courtroom case of Brown v. Board of practise (1954) settled the query of despite if or no longer blacks and whites can get carry of an practise integrated with or become self reliant from one yet another. The case overturned the 1896 case of Plessy v. Ferguson, which everyday the doctrine of "separate yet equivalent." this concept suggested that separate public centers of equivalent high quality do no longer violate the equivalent protection clause of the Fourteenth substitute of the form.

    umm well the only wxample i can think of is the Little ROck incident, where 9 black studens wanted to integrate Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. the governor (or maybe the mayor) called in the state troopers or national guard to supposedly stop white protesters from attacking the black students, but the guards actually barred the children from entering the school, and the official that called them in supported them. it wasnt until the president of the time (cant remember who at the moment) called in the 101st division of paratroopers (who fought in WWII) to protect the students that the students were allowed to enter. for the next year the students faced extreme hardships, although Ernest Greene became the firdst african american to graduate from Central High. However, during the next year, integration failed to continue, and it wanst until many years later that another attempt at integration was made, and was successful. for more information, try readin the book "Warriors Dont Cry" which is based off the diary of one of the girls who tried to integrate the school . there is also a movie based off of this
