about

Award-winning author Susan Goldman Rubin chronicles the fascinating story behind the Brown v. Board of Education's landmark Supreme Court decision.

In 1954, one of the most significant Supreme Court decisions of the twentieth Century aimed to end school segregation in the United States. Although known as Brown v. Board of Education, the ruling applied not just to the case of Linda Carol Brown, an African American third grader refused entry to an all-white Topeka, Kansas school, but to cases involving children in South Carolina, Delaware, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Here is the story of the many people who stood up to racial inequality, some risking significant danger and hardship, and of careful strategizing by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Historical photographs, a time line, texts of primary sources and other valuable back matter are included.

Susan Goldman Rubin’s award-winning books for children include Fireflies in the Dark, a Sydney Taylor Award Honor Book, a Golden Kite Honor Book, and a Booklist Top Ten Art Book for Youth. She lives in California.
