Brown v Board of Education of Topeka (1954)
Did Brown overrule Plessy?
---Brown focuses exclusively on psychological effects in the context of education (motivation and learning)
---Studies cited in Brown pertain to education
"Whatever may have been the extent of psychological knowledge at the time of Plessy v. Ferguson, this finding is amply supported by modern authority.  Any language in Plessy v. Ferguson contrary to this finding is rejected. We conclude that in the field of public education the doctrine of "separate but equal" has no place."

Did Brown say that segregated municipal pools, golf courses and park benches unconstitutional? Are they?
---Integration through series of per curium decisions: "See Brown"
