"In 1954, one of the most significant Supreme Court decisions of the twentieth Century aimed to end school segregation in the United States. Although known as Brown v. Board of Education, the ruling applied not just to the case of Linda Carol Brown, an African American third grader refused entry to an all-white Topeka, Kansas school, but to cases involving children in South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, DC"--Dust jacket flap.

From Library Staff

Many may only recall the Supreme Court case and its historic ruling, but there were five cases tried at the local level that later made up the highest court case plaintiffs. This is an easy to read account of the events and cases leading up to the ruling to desegregate schools in the US.

One of the better overviews of the Brown vs. Topeka Board of Education case written for children in recent years. See Chapter 2, "Linda Carol Brown," for a profile of the civil rights hero who died in March, 2018.
