Its main objective was to put the united states on a path that would lead to the creation of a truly culturally pluralistic society.-the terms culturally pluralistic or cultural pluralism do not appear in any supreme court judges opinion in the brown v. topeka board of education decision. from all indications, the intent of the decision was not to preserve african american cultural heritage. its intent appears to have been to make african americans fully (socially, politically and economically) integrated members of u.s. society - which, if achieved, could actually cause the loss of some distinctly african american linguistic and other cultural characteristics. the decision led to more open racial conflict and hostilities in the south, as some southern caucasians engaged in violent acts of resistance to attempts to integrate schools and other public accommodation facilities. a great many caucasians along with a great many african americans, were also physically involved in the efforts to desegregate public schools, as well in the staging of ride-ins and sit-oins staged to integrate trains, buses, lunch counters, and other public accommodation facilities. the ride-ins, sit-ins, and attempts to desegregate schools received extensive coverage by foreign media, which is one reason martin luther king, jr. was sufficiently well-known abroad to become the recipient of the 1964 nobel peace prize.
