2024 Marks the 70th Anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education: Hear from the Daughter of the Lead Plaintiff
28 Nov 2023
APB is proud to exclusively represent Cheryl Brown Henderson, one of the three daughters of the late Rev. Oliver L. Brown who, in the fall of 1950, along with 12 other parents in Topeka, Kansas, led by attorneys for the NAACP, filed suit on behalf of their children against the local Board of Education. Their case joined with cases from Delaware, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C., on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. On May 17, 1954, it became known as the landmark decision Brown v. the Board of Education when the Supreme Court ruled that separating children in public schools on the basis of race was unconstitutional. Cheryl is booking out now for next May. Hear a message from her below and consider bringing her to speak to your community:
Cheryl's dedication to her family's legacy and the ongoing struggle for educational equality is a testament to the enduring impact of Brown v. Board of Education. As we prepare to commemorate the 70th anniversary of this landmark case, consider bringing Cheryl to your community to speak on the progress made, the challenges that persist and how we can all renew our commitment to building a more inclusive and equitable educational system for future generations.
