Civil Rights Movement for Kids: Brown vs Board of Education (Black History)

HEY IT’S JEREMIAH AND RIGHT NOW WE ARE GOING
TO THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT FOR KIDS AND TODAY WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A HISTORIC CASE
IN THE U.S. SUPREME COURT BROWN VERSUS BOARD OF EDUCATION.
GETTING A GOOD EDUCATION IS VERY IMPORTANT AND PEOPLE TRAVEL TO TO ATTEND SCHOOL HERE
IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FROM AROUND THE WORLD. FROM ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS TO UNIVERSITIES
YOU WILL SEE A DIVERSE GROUP OF PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES FILLING UP CLASSROOMS
BUT IT WASN’T ALWAYS LIKE THAT HERE IN THE UNITED STATES.
ACTUALLY UP UNTIL 1954 CLASSROOM WERE QUITE DIFFERENT NOT ALLOWING AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENTS
TO ATTEND SCHOOL WITH WHITE STUDENTS THERE TOO. NOW I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT THAT DEFINITELY
DOESN’T SOUND FAIR TO ME. BUT THIS WAS ALLOWED BECAUSE OF A PREVIOUS COURT CASE IN 1896 THAT
SAID SEGREGATION WAS OKAY, WHICH MEANT THAT SCHOOLS COULD KEEP WHITE AND AFRICAN AMERICAN
STUDENTS SEPARATE. NOW THERE IS AN ORGANIZATION THAT STILL EXISTS
TODAY CALLED THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE ALSO KNOWN
AS THE NAACP. THIS ORGANIZATION STARTED TO FIGHT BACK WITH SMALL EFFORTS IN THE 1930S
BY FIGHTING IN COURTS AROUND THE COUNTRY THAT ALLOWED SEGREGATION IN SCHOOL DISTRICTS. HAVING
SUCCESS ON A LOCAL AND STATE LEVEL THEY TOOK THEIR FIGHT ONE STEP HIGHER. THE NAACP STOOD
UP TO FIGHT THIS UNFAIR TREATMENT IN THE HIGHEST COURT OF THE LAND , THE UNITED STATES SUPREME
COURT. THEY HAD THEIR COUNSEL THURGOOD MARSHALL ARGUE
THE CASE IN FRONT OF THE SUPREME COURT TO STOP LAWS THAT MADE AFRICAN AMERICANS HAVE
TO BE SEPARATE IN CLASSROOMS FROM WHITE STUDENTS. A FUN FACT ABOUT THURGOOD MARSHALL IS LATER
HE WOULD BECOME THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ON THE UNITED STATES
SUPREME COURT IN US HISTORY. THAT IS WHEN ON MAY 17TH 1954 THE SUPREME
COURT HANDED DOWN ITS DECISION TO STRIKE DOWN SEGREGATION IN SCHOOLS. WITH THEIR DECISION
THIS FORCED SCHOOLS WHO KEPT AFRICAN-AMERICANS SEPARATE FROM WHITES TO TO ALLOW INTEGRATION.
WHAT INTEGRATION MEANS IS THEY HAD TO MAKE A WAY TO INTEGRATE MEANING TO BRING AFRICAN-AMERICANS
BACK INTO THE SAME CLASSROOM MIXED WITH WHITE STUDENTS. THE SUPREME COURT ALSO HELPED BY
MAKING RULES TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS GOT DONE BECAUSE A LOT OF TIMES WHEN LAWS GOT PASSED
PEOPLE TOOK THEIR TIME BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO KEEP THINGS THE WAY THEY WERE IN THE PAST.
LATER ON AFTER THE SUPREME COURT MADE THESE LAWS AND GAVE GUIDELINES IT CHANGED THE CLASSROOM
ENVIRONMENT THAT WE ARE SEEING TODAY AND NOW YOU SEE INTEGRATED CLASSROOMS WITH ALL ETHNICITIES
BEING ALLOWED IN SCHOOLS TODAY. WELL THAT WAS ALL FROM ME ON A QUICK LESSON WITH BROWN
VS THE BOARD OF EDUCATION AND CIVIL RIGHTS HISTORY FOR KIDS
