This year marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education.
The ruling radically changed the landscape of public education in the United States. It declared that racial segregation in public schools - a fact of life for many American children - was "unequal." It also propelled the nation into a series of social changes which were celebrated by some citizens and protested by others.
Fifty years later we look back at this significant civil rights case, the people involved and the effects it produced even years afterward.
