In the 1954 case Brown v. Board of Education, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled that segregation was unconstitutional, overthrowing Plessy v. Ferguson (1896), which set the “separate but equal” precedent. In this one-man play, Mike Wiley recounts the effects of the decision on the families who participated in the original court case, the impact of the ruling on school systems at the time and the challenges still being made today.
Reception at 6:30 pm. Performance at 7 pm.
