Brown versus Board of Education is one of the country’s most important cases.It overturned an earlier Supreme Court decision, and it helped launch the civil rights movement.
布朗对抗教育委员会的案例是这个国家最重要的案例之一。它推翻了最高法院一项早期决议,并且推动了民权运动。
At the center of the case was a little girl.In the early 1950s, Linda Brown was eight years old.Every day, she had to travel for more than an hour to go to a local public school for black children.
案例的中心是一个小女孩。20世纪50年代早期,琳达·布朗那年8岁。每天,她都要花费一个多小时的时间到当地为黑人小孩办的公立学校去上学。
At the time, public school systems could legally separate black and white students.The reason related to a Supreme Court decision from 1896.It said that separating people by race was legal, as long as the buildings and equipment were equal.
在那个时候,公立学校将黑人学生和白人学生分开对待的制度是合法的。这与最高法院1896年的决议有关。它规定:只要教学楼和教学装备是一样的,按照种族将学生分开是合法的。
But the father of young Linda Brown did not think racial segregation was right or fair.He wanted his children to go to the school close to their house, even if the school was for white children.When he tried to register Linda there, school officials said no.
但是小琳达·布朗的爸爸认为种族分离不正确,不公平。他希望他的孩子可以到离家近一点的学校上学,即使这学校是给白人孩子开设的。当他试着给琳达在那办理入学时,学校官员拒绝了。
So Brown and other activists took action in court against the law.They said schools separated by race could never be equal.
所以布朗和其他积极分子便将这条法规告上了法庭。他们说学校按照种族分开学生是不公平的。
All nine Supreme Court justices agreed.Brown versus Board of Education demanded equal opportunity in public education, and in time led to desegregation in other public places.
最高法院的9大法官都同意这种观点。布朗反对教育委员会的决议的要求获得了公共教育的平等机会,并且也适时的推动了在其他公共场所废除种族隔离的进程。
