Words That Made the Difference Brown vs the Board of Education May 11

Event starts in

19 Days 02 Hours 23 Minutes

Words That Made the Difference: Brown vs. the Board of Education is based on the court cases involved in the fight to end school segregation. The play is set in the courtrooms of history, with the plaintiffs, witnesses, and justices whose courageous words culminated in the unanimous decision to end segregation in public schools. The script draws from the actual words from the memoirs of the late Chief Justice Earl Warren and from the trial transcripts of the five cases that were brought together before the Supreme Court. 2024 marks the 70th anniversary of the unanimous court decision. As Earl Warren was former governor of California and Marin County was the last county in the nation to adhere to the court order of desegregation, WORDS is powerfully relevant today. As our nation continues the work to be a truly just, fair, and anti-racist society, Words That Made the Difference sets the scene for exactly what the work within the courtroom looked like 70 years ago.
