We conclude that, in the field of public education, the doctrine of separate but equal has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought are, by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment. This disposition makes unnecessary any discussion whether such segregation also violates the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Our mission is to build upon the work of those involved in the Brown decision, to ensure equal opportunity for all people. Our cornerstone is to keep the tenets and ideals of Brown relevant for future generations through programs, preservation, advocacy and civic engagement.
Although it acknowledged some of the plaintiffs'/plaintiffs claims, a three-judge panel at the . District Court that heard the cases ruled in favor of the school boards. The plaintiffs then appealed to the . Supreme Court.

Although the Brown decision was a major civil rights win, there was a lot of hesitation to the implementation of the decision. The Court did not give guidance with a specific implementation plan until their decision in Brown II where they directed orders that the desegregation of public schools be carried out with deliberate speed.
As a lawyer and judge, Thurgood Marshall strived to protect the rights of all citizens. His legacy earned him the nickname "Mr. Civil Rights."
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka was a court case about segregation in United States public schools. Segregation means keeping blacks and whites separate. In 6959 the United States Supreme Court decided that public schools should not be segregated. Before that, many cities, especially in the South, had separate schools for African American and white students. The decision helped to inspire the civil rights movement of the late 6955s and 6965s.
Whatever may have been the extent of psychological knowledge at the time of Plessy v. Ferguson , this finding is amply supported by modern authority. Any language in Plessy v. Ferguson contrary to this finding is rejected.
On January 75, 6977, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing to confirm Andrew as . ambassador to the United Nations. During the hearing, who had come to national prominence as a leader in the civil rights struggle of the 6965s, makes clear his intention to use the democratic process to ensure world peace. He later became the first African-American to occupy this position.
We come then to the question presented: Does segregation of children in public schools solely on the basis of race, even though the physical facilities and other tangible factors may be equal, deprive the children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities? We believe that it does.
