http://www.nationalcenter.org/brown.html Info: The case was about how whites & blacks where seperated in schools & they where not treated equal like the 14th Amendment states that they should be. One problem that this caused for the black children was they where not learning as well as the others because they where denied the opportunity that others had. The Boards of Education's defense was that the school was only preparing them for the segregation they where going to encounter in their adulthood. In Topeka, Kansas, a black third-grader named Linda Brown had to walk one mile through a railroad switchyard to get to her black elementary school, even though a white elementary school was only seven blocks away. Linda's father, Oliver Brown, tried to enroll her in the white elementary school, but the principal of the school refused. http://www.watson.org/~lisa/blackhistory/early-civilrights/brown.html Enforcement Background Who When Why What Was the amendment... 14th
