Brown v. Board of Education

The Supreme Court decided that segregation in schools is unequal. Key people in this movement was Thurgood Marshall, he was NAACP Legal Defense Team and Oliver Hill NAACP Legal Defense Team in Virginia. Although this was a great and fair change Virginia’s response was a little rough, some schools close and a lot of white schools went to private academies and this cause a lot of white flight from urban public school systems.
