Brown vs. Board of Education
By Abigail Fleitman
In 1953 the Supreme Court heard the case but was unable to decide the issue and asked to rehear the case in the fall of 1953, with special attention to whether the fourteenth amendment's equal protection clause prohibited the operation of separate public schools for whites and blacks. The judges came to an unamoious decision to overturn please vs. ferguson and end segragion. The effects led to the slow end of segragion of schools and public places all across America.
