Oral histories of Brown v Board plaintiffs

As part of its coverage of the 65th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, The 74 has created a series of oral histories featuring family members and others connected to the plaintiffs in the five cases that combined to form the Brown case. For example, Joan E. Anderson, daughter of the Delaware plaintiffs in Belton v. Gebhart, remembers what it was like to integrate Delaware schools. John Stokes, a student strike leader, recalls the case of Davis v. Prince Edward County School Board. And Ada Stukes Adderley shares how her parents and siblings got involved in the Briggs v. Elliott case in South Carolina.

All eight videos that are part of the series are available at The 74’s website. Also available are a series of essays and a book titled Recovering Untold Stories: An Enduring Legacy of the Brown v. Board of Education Decision.
