Abstract:

A dramatization of the legal strategy and social struggle that resulted in the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling against segregated schools. At Howard University, Professor Charles Hamilton Houston trains a cadre of African-American lawyers to fight the legal basis for segregation, the 1896 ruling in Plessy v. Ferguson. One of his students, Thurgood Marshall, after a series of court cases, finally succeeds in overturning Plessy v. Ferguson. This is the Supreme Court ruling of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, which stated that public schools can no longer be segregated.
