    1. History of the fight to desegregate schools up to the victory in the Supreme Court. Almost like watching a judicial drama on TV. Although it provides updates on the main characters, it does not give the full, complete story of school desegregation. I wish author had included stories of desegregation as they happened across the country took years after the SC decision! There are some great stories in those efforts, as well--I know, 'cause I was there!

    2. Full of pictures and very readable and engaging text, this book is a review of the cases, plaintiffs, and attorneys involved in the Supreme Court cases to end segregation in America's public schools. A timeline, brief summaries of the relevant cases, the text of the 14th Amendment, the text of the SCOTUS decision in Brown v. Board of Education, a bibliography, source notes, and an index are all included. I enjoyed it. Highly recommended as an introduction to the subject for middle/high school st [...]

All the different cases that made up Brown vs Board of Education--I had no idea that other plaintiffs, sta [...]

    4. As important as the Supreme Court's ruling in Brown v. Board of Education was, many public schools today have become resegregated due to white flight to the suburbs and changing neighborhood patterns. The slowness of some school districts and states to respond to that mandate ending school segregation resulted in great changes in some areas but not in others. Well-researched and thoughtfully written, this account of the many individuals whose desire for equal opportunities provided through educa [...]

    5. Susan Goldman Rubin tells the history of what led to Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case as well as the case itself and the aftermath. The 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case stated that schools and facilities for white and black students were to be "separate but equal." However that was far from the reality. White and black children went to school under very different conditions. White students learned in modern schools with adequate space and with many opportunities to learn, while black s [...]
