In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court declared, “Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal,” thus legally ending segregation in schools across the nation. The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site allowed us to learn about the history that led up to this monumental decision and to connect to its ongoing legacy.
If you are ever in Topeka, KS, you must stop by The Brown v. Board of Education Historical Site. I wish I had gotten more pictures, but there were so many interactive exhibits I was engaged with them instead of snapping photos.
This was one of our most favorite historical sites we’ve visited.
And Madison earned her Junior Ranger badge here as well.
This is amazing mural on a building adjacent to the historical site.
Next up is the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum, and the Harry S. Truman National Historic Site.
