I don't really understand Double Jeopardy?

From what I read online and grasped from double jeopardy, it means you can't be tried again for a case with a verdict? But what about past cases like Brown v. Board of Education? Wasn't that case givin a verdict then sent to the Supreme Court?

What confuses me is, how are cases able to be sent to the Supreme Court yet double jeapordy doesn't allow you to be tried again? Or does double jeopardy only fall under murder cases an what not????

I might be completely wrong, so please help me out and explain it in a long yet easy way so I can grasp every little concept.
