Political cartoon
Political Cartoon

This political cartoon is showing that in Brown vs. Board of education, they decided that separate but equal is not actually equal. In this decision the US Supreme Court overthrew the earlier decision of Plessy vs. Ferguson. As you can see, many states (especially southern states) disagreed with this decision. Arkansas in particular did not like the Supreme Court decision.
