"We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place."

Opinion, 5/17/1954

Case File for Brown et al. v. Board of Education of Topeka et al., ca. 1950 - ca. 1955. Records of the Supreme Court of the United States. National Archives Identifier: 1656510

Sixty years ago on May 17, 1954, Chief Justice Earl Warren delivered this unanimous U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the landmark civil rights case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. The Court found that state-sanctioned segregation of public schools violated the 14th Amendment. The decision marked the end of the “separate but equal” precedent set by the Supreme Court nearly 60 years before in Plessy v. Ferguson. Although this decision is commonly known as “Brown v. Board” this decision was actually six cases grouped together. Selected pages are shown.
