About this Item

228pp. The book was released to the public on May 16, 1954, a day before the Supreme Court issued its decision in Brown vs. Board of Education. However, the Justices were given advance copies some time beforehand, and may have read the work during the course of deliberations. Chief Justice Warren later stated that the court consulted the book while writing the decision in Griffin v. County School Board of Prince Edward County (a.k.a. Brown II, 1955), a case affecting the implementation of the Brown decision. "The Negro and the Schools" was Ashmore's first book. Three years later he won the Pulitzer Prize for his editorials on the integration of the Little Rock public schools that appeared in the "Arkansas Gazette.
