The Road to Brown v. Board of Education

The June 2015 issue of response features a story on Pauli Murray, civil rights lawyer commissioned by United Methodist Women foremothers to write an analysis of the effect of racial segregation on education. This work, titled States Laws on Race and Color, was influential in the work of lawyers arguing the Brown v. the Board of Education case in which the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that segregated education was inherently unequal.

The podcast Stuff You Missed in History recently talked about Brown v. Board of Education, the social conditions that led up to it and the struggles to implement it. Below are the episodes, which are about 30 minutes each. Enjoy!
