In 1952, the Supreme Court heard a number of school segregation cases, including Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. It ruled unanimously in 1954 that segregation was unconstitutional, overthrowing Plessy v. Ferguson (1896), which set the "separate but equal" precedent.

Mike Wiley recounts the effects this famous court case had on the families involved, the impact the ruling had on school systems at the time and the challenges still being faced today.
