"I feel like a winner" was the recollection of Mrs. Vivian Scales as she reflected on hearing the Supreme Court's decision in the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas, case on May 17, 1954. Scales was one of the original plaintiffs who challenged the existence of separate elementary schools for African American and White students in Topeka. Excerpts of interviews conducted with Mrs. Scales and Reverend Oliver Browns' daughters, Linda Brown Thompson and Cheryl Brown Henderson, are referenced in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Brown decision.
