Your Guide to Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site
The story of Brown v. Board of Education, which ended legal segregation in public schools, is one of hope and courage.
When the people agreed to be plaintiffs in the case, they never knew they would change history. The people who make up this story were ordinary people. They were teachers, secretaries, welders, ministers and students who simply wanted to be treated equally.
The site is located in downtown Topeka, Kansas at 1515 SE Monroe Street.
