The Brown Sisters

Linda and Cheryl are two of the three daughters of the late Rev. Oliver L. Brown, who, along with twelve other parents led by the NAACP, filed suit against the local Board of Education on behalf of their children in the historic case, Oliver L. Brown et. al. vs. the Board of Education of Topeka, et. al. Upon appeal to the United States Supreme Court, the case became the lead among five other legal challenges; Oliver Brown died in 1961 before knowing the impact of this landmark US Supreme Court decision.
