Linda Brown, Topeka, KS girl whose experience with desegregated schools started Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, vintage 8 x 10 inch glossy silver print photograph credited to Carl Iwaski of LIFE Magazine, 1951. Printed in the second half of the 20th century as part of the American Heritage Publishing Archive. 

Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case in which the Court declared state laws establishing separate public schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional. The decision overturned the Plessy v. Ferguson decision of 1896, which allowed state-sponsored segregation, insofar as it applied to public education. Handed down on May 17, 1954, the Warren Court's unanimous (9–0) decision stated that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." As a result, de jure racial segregation was ruled a violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. This ruling paved the way for integration and was a major victory of the Civil Rights Movement.
