Presentation Transcript


Bell Ringer #6 – 3/15/2010

  • What were the goals of the NAACP-LDEF?

  • Who was Constance Baker Motley?

  • How did Thurgood Marshall first gain recognition?


Brown v. Board of Education

  • In 1950, Oliver Brown filed a lawsuit in Topeka, Kansas. He testified that his daughter Linda had to travel an hour & 20 mins to attend a black school.

  • The all-white Sumner School was only 7 blocks away, but practiced racial exclusion.


Brown v. Board of Education

  • Constance Motley and the LDEF brought the Brown case to the Supreme Court.

  • In 1954, Chief Justice Earl Warren declared that “separate but equal” has no place. Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.


By the time the case was won, Linda was in 7th grade and attended the already integrated Topeka H.S. This photo was for publicity.

Lynching of Emmett Till

  • 14 y.o. boy from Chicago who was visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi during the summer of 1955

  • Some say he whistled, others say he said “Bye, Baby” to a candy store owner’s wife.

  • He was taken by gunpoint nights later and his body was found in a river, tied to a heavy cotton gin fan.


The aftermath of Till

  • Even though a bullet was found in Till’s head, an all-white jury acquitted the two men who lynched him.

  • Mamie Bradley, Emmett’s mother, insisted on an open casket in Chicago to display her son’s mangled body.

  • She also traveled the country to tell the story and strengthen the early Civil Rights movement.
