Separate But Equal 1991
This film follows the true story of the NAACP court challenge of racial school segregation in the Brown vs. Board of Education. This was the struggle that would destroy the legal validity for racial segregation in general and prove to be the start and the first major victory of the civil rights movement.

The plot of the film begins in 1950, when USA still had legally- sanctioned racial segregation in the southern states. The legal basis for this policy was Separate But Equal doctrine adopted by US Supreme Court in 1896, which claimed that black and white Americans can have equal rights and be legally segregated in the same time. Reverend De Lanie, principal of black school in Southern Carolina, cares little for obscure legal doctrines. He only knows that the schools receive less financial resources than schools with white children. In order to change that situation, De Lanie goes to court and seeks assistance from NAACP - National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
