Not Equal and Separate
Post Trial And The Effect On The American Society
In December, 1952, the U.S. Supreme Court had cases from Kansas, Delaware, Washington DC, South Carolina, and Virginia, all of which challenged the constitutionality of racial segregation in public schools. The U.S. Supreme Court had discussed these five cases under one name, Brown. vs. the Board Of Education.
In the period of time after the civil war, Plessy vs Ferguson(1896) ruled that segregation in schools would be legal. Schools were divided by race.
Black schools weren't as well built as white schools and didn't recieve as well an education. This created a major outcry against the segregation and lead to the Brown vs Board of Educa
Brown claimed that Topeka's racial segregation violated the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause because the city's black and white schools were not equal to each other and never could be.
The Trial affected society tremendously. It inspired reform and desegregation on more areas in society than just school systems. It caused other people to question and eventually end segregation.
