Brown v. Board of Education

"We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal. Therefore, we hold that the plaintiffs and others similarly situated for whom the actions have been brought, are by reason of the segregation complained of, deprived of the equal protection of the laws guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment." - Mr. Chief Justice Warren delivering the 1954 opinion of the Supreme Court in the case of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka
