Warren Court (1962-1965)

This is the official Supreme Court photograph of the men who made up the court from 1962-1965, under the leadership of Chief Justice Earl Warren. The members of the court were, from left to right, top row: Byron R. White, William J. Brennan, Jr., Potter Stewart, Arthur J. Goldberg. Bottom row: Tom C. Clark, Hugo L. Black, Earl Warren, William O. Douglas, and John M. Harlan II. The Warren Court made several historic decisions advancing civil rights, most famously Brown v. Board of Education, which held that racial segregation was unconstitutional. The court also expanded the constitutional rights of people accused of committing a crime.
