Board of Education ushered in a modern America that must grapple honestly with the promise of equality and opportunity for all of its citizens,” said Sherrilyn Ifill, president of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. “NAACP LDF pioneered the Brown case and today we continue to fight inequality in every walk of life where we live, where we work and where we learn.”
