The Road to Brown: The Untold Story of "The Man Who Killed Jim Crow"

Loading...
The story of segregation and the brilliant legal campaign against it which helped to launch the Civil Rights movement. Also a moving and long- overdue tribute to a daring but little known Black lawyer, Charles Hamilton Houston - "the man who killed Jim Crow". Charles Houston, Dean of Howard University Law School, realized that an attack on the legal basis of segregated education would undermine Jim Crow. In a taut constitutional detective story, the video untangles the cases that led to the landmark 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education decision. Finally, the video revisits the "New South" of integrated schools and black elected officials. Though much has changed, America still has far to go along the road to equality and social justice.
