According to a White House official:

On Thursday, as part of a series of appointments marking the 70th anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision, President Biden will meet with plaintiffs and their family members at the White House. Among those the president will meet include Adrienne Jennings Bennett, a plaintiff in one of the original cases, Boiling v. Sharpe, which was argued along with Brown v. Board, and Cheryl Brown Henderson, one of the lead prosecutor's daughters . Oliver L. Brown, in Brown v. Board. The delegation represents litigants from the five cases that were combined under Brown v. Board of Education and heard before the Supreme Court, as well as NAACP President Derrick Johnson and other NAACP leaders who were crucial in the fight for this and other hard-fought cases . freedoms for black Americans.

Here is the list of participants who will be at the White House:

Brown v. Family Board Members:

Cheryl Brown Henderson
Daughter of said plaintiff, Oliver Brown
Darl Everett, Jr.
Victoria Benson

It is impossible to overstate how historically important the Brown decision is in American history. Brown said segregating children in public schools was unconstitutional. It would take another nine years of civil rights struggles before the Civil Rights Act would be signed into law.

The contrast between Biden and his 2024 opponent is clear. President Biden honors civil rights history, while the ex-president ignores or downplays it.

At a time when Republicans are trying to erase history and banish it from libraries, events like the one at the White House are crucial.
