WCSC Live 5 News: Charleston’s IAAM marks 70th anniversary of desegregation in public schools

Live 5 News Reporter Carlie Baker reports on the event: 

“The International African American Museum hosted an event Friday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v. the Board of Education that outlawed public school segregation.

On May 17, 1954, the Supreme Court laid out a new precedent: Separate but equal has no place in American schools. The ruling in Brown v. Board of Education declared white and Black students could not be forced to attend separate schools, even if those schools were allegedly equal in quality.

About 100 community members came out to the museum for an event called ‘From Briggs to Brown: The Journey Toward Desegregated Education.'”
