Jake Holtz 2/12/08 1. Case Name: Brown V. Board of Education 2. Year Case Decided by Supreme Court: 1954 3. Facts that triggered the dispute: Oliver Brown was a minister in Topeka who had an eight year old daughter named Linda. The Browns lived in a predominantly white neighborhood, however according to law any city over 15,000 people could segregate their schools. Topeka took advantage of this. Due to this fact Linda Brown was forced to go to a segregated elementary school for black children. Now, there was a white school that was closer to the Browns than the school that Linda was forced to go to. The Browns felt that they black school was too far away and that the trip was too dangerous for an eight year old to take every day. Also, Oliver wanted his little girl to get the best education possible and felt that the best way to do this was to have her go to the white school that was nearby. 4.
