Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka

Camera Roll-362

Yesterday was the anniversary of Oliver Brown et al. v. Board of Education of Topeka et al., the landmark case effectively ending the racial segregation in public schools, by declaring the concept of separate but equal unconstitutional.

In the General historical manuscripts, documents, and photographs collection (1981.008) we have two typed and signed draft opinions in the cases, 1954 (1981.008.8.7.1) and 1955 (1981.008.8.7.2), each signed by Justice Earl Warren.
