Brown vs Board of Education

brown

On Sunday, May 17, we observed the 66th anniversary of the landmark Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling that unanimously struck down segregrated schools and outlawed the old separate-but-equal principle in public facilities. While it would take years for the ruling to become reality throughout the nation, it was a monumental legal start.

Led by Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP, five lawsuits from South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia and Kansas were combined into the Brown vs. Board of Education case. One ofJoseph Elaine those lawsuits involved the Rev. Joseph DeLaine of Clarendon County, SC.
