Glenn Harlan Reynolds, RealClearInvestigations
Many moderns might think of Brown v. Board of Education, which ended school segregation, as a Front Row decision, but although the Front Row came to endorse the Brown decision, and even to define itself by its opposition to racial discrimination, at the time of the decision the Front Row was deeply divided on the issue, as were members of the black civil rights community itself. Many of them feared that Thurgood Marshall’s civil rights litigators were getting ahead of themselves and risked a devastating defeat in the Supreme Court, or a destructive political backlash.
