Brown v Board of Education of Topeka was one of the most important legal decisions in the US this century and the effects of desegregation and the legacy of the civil rights movement still greatly influence race relations today. Over thirty primary documents are here used to place the Brown case in its historical context with both contemporary and retrospective responses.
