It was to make it so blacks and whites could go to the same schools.
It has changed america besause blacks dont have to go to old and rotted schools with out dated books and no desks.

Brown sued the Board of Education because his duaghter had to ride a bus for 21 blocks just to get to a all- black Monroe school. This changed life because now any body of any race can be free to go to any school as they please. :D

This made it so that it was illegal to separate the different races. This made a huge difference in our country because it changed education so that all the students could go to the same school and get the same education.
