This is a two part resource. The first entitled Building Blocks outlines the school desegregation cases in the nation and in the state of Kansas that were filed prior to Brown v. Board of Education. It includes dates, photos and an explanation of these early cases. Most people are not aware that there were even three such cases filed against the Board of Education of Topeka, prior to Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the case that went on to lead a roster of appeals before the U.S. Supreme Court, from Delaware, Kansas, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
The second part of the resource is entitled “The Cases” which outlines the five cases that combined by the U.S. Supreme Court under the heading of Brown v. Board of Education. It includes dates, photos and an explanation of each case. The ending segment of this resource also shares the names of the legal team and community organizers involved in the cases. The back cover shows the Supreme Court
proceeding document and an excerpt from the court opinion.
