Borders of Equality

Prior to the mid-1950s, the NAACP had relied on various types of legal cases and campaigns to achieve integration for African Americans, resulting in legal equality across America. The most prominent of these cases was Brown v. Board of Education (1954), in which the Supreme Court declared segregation in education to be unconstitutional. This chapter examines the role of the NAACP during the height of the civil rights movement in Baltimore, from the attempt to desegregate the city’s schools after the Supreme Court decision in Brown to the Baltimore riot of 1968. It concludes with a discussion of Lillie M. Jackson and her family’s eventual relinquishing of the NAACP’s Baltimore branch in November 1969.
