Brown v. Board of Education | Road Trip


The Plessy v. Ferguson decision set the precedent that "separate" facilities for blacks and whites were constitutional as long as they were "equal." In 1954, the Brown v. Board of Education case stated that segregation in public schools was illegal, thus overturning the "separate, but equal" policy.
