Brown vs. Board of Education Ever since the founding of the United States of America, blacks have continuously been considered inferior to the white race. In the year of 1954, a substantial advancement in the fight for equality for blacks was prevalent. Countless prominent leaders of the United States realized the injustices that the blacks were forced to endure daily. Stated blatantly in the Declaration of Independence, it is said that all men are created equally. Disregarding the opinions of the men in the South, people began to realize that it was time to truly consider every man who is a citizen of the United States as equals. A life where segregation was not prevalent in schools, restaurants, theatres, parks, buses, and all public
Brown v. Board of Education The case of brown v. board of education was one of the biggest turning points for African Americans to becoming accepted into white society at the time. Brown vs. Board of education to this day remains one of, if not the most important cases that African Americans have brought to the surface for the better of the United States. Brown v. Board of Education was not simply about children and education (Silent Covenants pg 11); it was about being equal in a society that claims African Americans were treated equal, when in fact they were definitely not. This case was the starting point for many Americans to realize that separate but equal did not work. The separate but equal label did not make sense either, the
Brown vs. Board of Education On May 17, 1954, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren delivered the unanimous ruling in the landmark civil rights case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas . State-sanctioned segregation of public schools was a violation of the 14th Amendment and was therefore unconstitutional.

No State shall make or enforce any law, which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to

Brown v. Board of Education Brown v. Board of Education was a court case that decided segregation was illegal. When it was taken to court, it followed other similar court cases about segregation and education. In court, five cases were combined under the name of Brown v. Board of Education.
When Warren began as Supreme Court Chief Justice,32 one of the early cases he faced was the very controversial Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka case,33 which presented the issue of whether "separate but equal" facilities for different races violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, as previously allowed by the Supreme Court in Plessy v. Ferguson.34 Before Warren's appointment, the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Fred Vinson was very divided on whether to overrule Plessy.35 However, under Warren's leadership and persuasion, the Supreme Court delivered a unanimous decision in overruling Plessy and finding the belief of "separate but equal" unconstitutional.36 Warren faced public outrage, including impeachment efforts, particularly from the south, where such cases were most prevalent, due to the unpopular Brown decision.37

On July 13, 2015, Sandra Bland committed suicide in Waller County Jail in Hempstead, Texas. Bland was an African-American, and was subject to police brutality. A few days before her death, the police placed Bland in jail as a result of traffic confrontation that did escalate to violence.
