This paper looks at the 1954 court case of Brown Versus the Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. The paper notes that it made a significant impact upon the American population and society as it overturned Flessy versus Ferguson's 'separate but equal' ruling and that instead it declared that racial segregation was illegal. However, the paper discusses how there are some critics who say that Brown has not been fully upheld in today's society.
From the Paper:"Brown Versus the Board of Education (1954) was a monumental statement regarding the future of racial segregation in America. Although the actual results did not end racial segregation for African Americans in many arenas (restaurants, transportation, work, etc.) it did manage to end racially segregated schools. Oliver L. Brown et al. v. the Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas was one of the most fundamental turning points in recent American history. Thurgood Marshall, in this case, aided in annihilating the legal foundation for racial segregation in schools. Through this victory for integration, American court cases have sided with desegregation and against discrimination on the basis of race, culture, religion or any other notable characteristics."
