Who Am I? Born in 1908, I later became a civil rights activist and lawyer. During Brown v. Board of Education, I successfully challenged the legality of racial segregation. As a result, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation was unconstitutional. In 1967, I became the first African American to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.
