Brown vs. Board of Education What is Brown vs. Board of Education? Personal Story Linda Brown, a third grader, had to walk six blocks to her school bus stop to ride to Monroe Elementary, her segregated black school one mile (1.6 km) away, while Sumner Elementary, a white school, was only seven blocks from her house.

5. Modern Experience in Education for African American How does it relate to kill a mockingbird? Brown vs. Board of Education relates in 2 ways
-One being both cases had to do with racism
-They both helped people realize that you cannot judge someone by their skin colour
Differences in trials are:
-One being that for the Brown case was a fair trial while the Tom Robinson case was an unfairly judged case.
-Another being that unlike the Brown case Tom was found guilty. Questions Do societies reproduce schools? what are the things that the schools do that the society does? Getting more deeply... Sources http://laurenaiello.info/category/uncategorized/

Ahyoung Choi Outcomes?? "As you grow older you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it— whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, of how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.” (pg. 200)
Lula stopped, but she said, "You ain't got no business bringin' white chillun here – they got their church, we got our'n. It is our church, ain't it, Miss Cal?" (pg. 48)
all Negroes lie, that all Negroes are basically immoral beings, that all Negro men are not to be trusted around our women, an assumption one associates with minds of their caliber. (pg. 47)
Negroes worshipped in it on Sundays and white men gambled in it on weekdays (pg. 130) "But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal – there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. (pg. 51)
"They (half black and half white children) don't belong anywhere. Colored folks won't have 'em 'cause they're half white; white folks won't have 'em 'cause they're colored, so they're just in-betweens, don't belong anywhere." (pg. 161)
“There’s something in our world that makes men lose their heads- they couldn’t be fair if they treid. In our courts, when it’s a white man’s word against a black man’s word, the white always wins. They’re ugly, but these are the facts of life” (pg. 252)
"I made [Zeebo] get a page of the Bible every day, and there was a book Miss Buford taught em out of" (pg. 125).
"Can't read?" I asked. "All those folks?" "That's right," Calpurnia nodded. "Can't but about four folks in First Purchase read . . . I'm one of 'em." "Where'd you go to school, Cal?" asked Jem.
