Abstract:

The Brown v. Board of Education ruling was the culmination of a brilliant legal assault on segregation that launched the Civil Rights movement, led by a visionary black lawyer, Charles Hamilton Houston, "the man who killed Jim Crow." Former slaves were robbed of the rights granted by the 14th and 15th Amendments. Under the "separate but equal" doctrine of the Supreme Court's 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision, black citizens were denied the right to vote, to attend white schools, or to get sick in white hospitals. Those who objected were liable to be lynched.

Houston targeted segregated education as the key to undermining the entire Jim Crow system. Interviews with his associates recount how Houston, eschewing the limelight himself, energized a generation of black jurists including future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall to wage the struggle against segregation. In a moving climax, the film recapitulates the arguments before the Court, Justice Warren's opinion striking down Plessy, and the jubilant reactions of black America.
