On May 17, 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its landmark decision in Board v. Board of Education, which ended constitutionally-sanctioned school segregation. The following year, the Court ordered school systems desegregated “with all deliberate speed.” In the 65 years since the Court’s declaration that the doctrine of “separate but equal” is “inherently unequal,” the precedent has journeyed through the federal and state court systems, through our local public schools, and through legal scholarship. Visit the Harris County Law Library to experience the journey with a pathfinder exhibit that takes you through Brown’s journey and provides physical scale to the decades-long path, including the 48 years separating the first federal district opinion to the opinion finally declaring Topeka’s schools to be desegregated.
