Abstract:     
In this article, Professor Finkelman discusses how the Brown v. Board of Education decisions were radical both jurisprudentially and substantively the implications of which were revolutionary in context of the time at which they were decided. In the Brown decisions, the Supreme Court was radical in the way it extended rights to minorities on a national scale, something never before accomplished. Here, Professor Finkelman provides a context for the Brown decisions by discussing racial segregation at the time and outlines the implications of the decisions themselves.
