About named building

Brown Hall houses first-year Warren students and provides them with convenient and picturesque housing as part of the greater Warren residential community. Serving as one of the main residential complexes in Warren College, Brown Hall is named after Linda Brown, the schoolgirl at the center of the landmark United States civil rights case, Brown V. Board of Education. This case marked the end of the Jim Crow laws, starting the process of desegregation thoughout the United States and empowering the American Civil Rights movement. It is considered one of the most impactful rulings of the "Warren Court" under the direction of Chief Justice Earl Warren.
