Interposition Resolution in Response to Brown v. Board of Education, 1957

Interposition Resolution in Response to Brown v. Board of Education, 1957

Date
1957-05-02
Description
The Florida State Legislature passed this resolution in opposition to the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision in the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas case that ended legal segregation in public education. Racial segregation was originally found to be constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark Plessy v. Ferguson case in 1896. That decision laid the legal foundation for what became known as Jim Crow laws throughout the nation, and especially in the U.S. South, by declaring segregation legal only if the facilities were "separate but equal." The Brown decision removed that foundation, and many segregationists saw the case as an opening wedge to ending all segregation. Therefore, the Florida Legislature argued that the decision usurped the state constitutional powers, and passed the resolution to declare the Court's decision in 1954 as null and void.
