        Documenting Brown 6: Brown v. Board of Education, 1955

        In 1954, the Supreme Court ruled in Brown v. Board of Education that segregated schools were unconstitutional. However, the Court did not specify how the ruling would be implemented.

The Court's opinion, which didn't specify a time frame, reflected the tension between those who insisted on immediate integration and those who opposed it.
