Brown v. Board of Education

On May 17, 1954, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Earl Warren delivered a unanimous ruling in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. The Court stated that “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal,” and that school segregation was unconstitutional, violating the equal protection guarantee of the 14th amendment.

This 1954 civil rights victory, argued by Thurgood Marshall, overturned the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision establishing the “separate-but-equal” segregation principle.  The Supreme Court’s conclusion can be seen above. View the full document here.

The reaction to the ruling was varied. For example, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and Prince Edward County in particular, resisted the Supreme Court’s decision. The county closed its public schools (including the one shown above) from 1959 to 1964 to avoid desegregation.

Unfortunately, some U.S. politicians still support policies that encourage racial segregation.

May 16, 1919: Liberace is born.
Happy Birthday, Liberace. Here’s a great photograph of Liberace by LIFE’s Loomis Dean. In this photo Liberace dances on top of the keys of his piano shaped pool in California in 1954.

Nashville legend Chet Atkins bragged that his swimming pool was shaped like a guitar amplifier.

Ever since Forrest Gump shook JFK’s hand in 1994, we’ve been obsessed with putting new things into old film footage. But just because we can doesn’t mean we should: Pull it off and it’s amazing; fail and the audience can only think about how fake it looks.


That was the gamble director Philip Kaufman faced with Hemingway & Gellhorn, his new HBO movie about the romance between Ernest Hemingway (Clive Owen) and war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman).

The Price of Sex (Trailer):

The Price of Sex is a feature-length documentary about young Eastern European women who’ve been drawn into a netherworld of sex trafficking and abuse. Intimate, harrowing and revealing, it is a story told by the young women who were supposed to be silenced by shame, fear and violence. Photojournalist Mimi Chakarova, who grew up in Bulgaria, takes us on a personal investigative journey, exposing the shadowy world of sex trafficking from Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Western Europe. Filming undercover and gaining extraordinary access, Chakarova illuminates how even though some women escape to tell their stories, sex trafficking thrives. Learn more at www.priceofsex.org .

Mexico: Playboy bunny “wins” presidential candidate debate

univisionnews:

The debate’s assistant or edecan became a hot trending topic on Twitter.

By MANUEL RUEDA

It wasn’t Enrique Peña Nieto, or Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, or Josefina Vázquez Mota. It wasn’t even Gabriel Quadri. The unofficial winner of last night’s first Mexican presidential debate was the woman pictured above.

She appeared for 30 seconds and did not say a word. Her only job was to present candidates with a box from which they picked paper slips that decided who got to speak first.
