    Brown v. Board of Education

    Actual Name: Oliver Brown et al. v. Board of Education of Topeka et al.

    Case overview: declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students unconstitutional. "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal."

    Courts: Supreme Court

    Decision: that segregated schools were unconstitutional this decision overturned a previous court case Plessy v. Ferguson which allowed state sponsored segregation

    De jure (by law) racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This ruling paved the way for integration and the civil rights movement.
