May 17, 1954: The Supreme Court Rules on Brown v. Board of Education
On this day in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that racial segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which says that no state may deny equal protection of the laws to any person within its jurisdiction.
Although the decision did not succeed in fully desegregating public education in the United States, it put the Constitution on the side of racial equality and galvanized the nascent civil rights movement into a full revolution.

Totally Biased: Kamau Talks to Melissa Harris-Perry (by TotallyBiasedFX)
You might not have known it from the last time these two were on camera together, but WKB + MHP = BFF. Melissa Harris-Perry sits down with Kamau to talk about battling with having a bunch of jobs, conservative commentators and “Thundercats.” Seriously.
One think I really love about Totally Bias is the fact that they put pretty much the entire show on Youtube which makes for easy sharing (or watching if you missed it that night)
