Oliver Brown, a resident of Topeka, wants to enroll his daughter Linda in the Sumner school, the closest to the family home. A school exclusively reserved for whites. Aged 9, Linda Brown saw her application to enroll in this public school in Kansas rejected because of her skin color. She is also forced to continue her education several kilometers away in a school reserved for black students.

“Linda Brown is one of those heroic young people who, along with her family, courageously fought to end the ultimate symbol of white supremacy – racial segregation in public schools.”
Sherrilyn Ifill, director of the legal branch of the NAACP, an organization founded in 1909 to defend the cause of blacks

“The Brown decision made America a beacon of hope to the rest of the world, it taught us that through the law we could end an oppressive race-based caste system.”
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
