This past May marked the 60th Anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education. In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court overturned the decision handed down in the case of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896). Chief Justice Earl Warren stated in Brown, “We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of ‘separate but equal’ has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. . .”
However, this ruling did not immediately desegregate what was segregated. This did not happen in full until the 1960s. Were there any flaws in the Brown ruling?
