TODAY IN HISTORY
On this day in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in public educational facilities is unconstitutional. That decision brought an end to federal tolerance of racial segregation. This all began when a young African-American girl named Linda Brown was not allowed to attend her local elementary school in Topeka, Kansas because of the color of her skin.
