About Cheryl Brown Henderson

Mrs. Henderson is one of the three daughters of the late Rev. Oliver L. Brown who, in the fall of 1950, along with 12 other parents, led by attorneys for the NAACP, filed suit on behalf of their children against the local Board of Education. Their case joined with cases from Delaware, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. on appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and on May 17, 1954, became known as the landmark decision: Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas.
