The Brown vs. Board of Education case, a Supreme Court case that took place in 1954, contributed majorly to the movement for equality. At that time, it was unlawful for African-American students to attend school alongside white students. However, this idea was put to question when Oliver Brown filed a lawsuit against the Topeka Board of Education in 1951. Through the case itself and media coverage, the message of racial discrimination in all professional settings was communicated to the public, fueling an ongoing revolution demanding justice.

"In these days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education." 

~Earl Warren​​​​​​​
