In 1954 , Oliver Brown went to Supreme Court. Due to the fact his family is African American his daughter Linda couldn’t attend the all white elementary school. He won his case by 9-0 votes. This case was a spark for the beginning of the civil rights movement. White parents where so angered by this movement that they started to riot. Linda was then allowed to attend Sumner elementary school but with the security of guards. Sadly she was harassed by parents and her fellow students due to the fact that she was African American. Thanks to Oliver Brown ,white and black children are going to school together today.
