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.

With cicadas set to emerge from the ground this year after a 17-year sleep, WNBC TV here in New York City did something neat: they followed up on a couple they had interviewed during the last great cicada invasion in 1996. Then they went a step further and dug up a news piece from 1979 on the same issue. From the ridiculous Star Trek-inspired set to the sit-down stand-up by the correspondent, this segment is a real blast from the TV news past.
