This Day in History: Brown vs. Board of Education

On this day in 1951, the U.S. Supreme Court declares segregation in public schools unconstitutional in Brown v. Board of Education decision.

Some of you may recall the Kenneth and Mamie Clark doll test, whereby children were shown two dolls- one black and one white-and asked which doll is ugly, which would they play with, etc. Black children overwhelmingly chose the white doll as the better doll. In 2006, filmmaker Kiri Davis did the experiment again in her film A Girl Like Me and received the same results.

Bearing all this in mind, do you believe desegregation helped children with their feelings of Black inferiority? Why or why not?
